Is Ryan Jimmo a force at LHW?

I have to admit that i haven't caught a lot of his fights before the one this past weekend. He has some solid wins over decent guys like Sokoudjou and Gouveia and he made a huge statement in his debut but from guys who have seen more is he legitimately a guy to be looking at as a challenger for Bones in a few fights time or not?

As long as he does the robot then yes!

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

I don't know, but I hope so. Besides doing the robot he was the one laughing the hardest when Riddle referred to the "butter tooth brit". The guy clearly has power, but does he have skill? I don't know but I can't wait until his next fight!

I'm going to generalize my statement based on the majority of people who have only seen Ryan fight this one time.

Don't judge someone by 1 fight, or even more accurately 1 punch. You didn't get to see his skillset at all so don't jump to quick conclusions.

I've seen Ryan fight in the MFC a few times here locally so I'm a little bit biased and will back him probably more then the average fan just because of that. The one thing with this quick knockout is that he's likely going to get a tough matchup next time instead of another "warm-up" fight. We'll find out within the next 1-2 fights exactly where he stands in the LHW division for sure.

Plus, anybody that can do the robot like that gets bonus points off the top.

Yeah, it's too early. Perosh has pretty awful standup and he just got caught. Nice win for Jimmo, but see how he does against a UFC fighter he actually has to fight with for awhile before I try to place him.

I would say in no way is Jimmo a prospect to challenge Jones. He is not strong enough in any one area to compete with him.

He can certainly turn into a good UFC 205er. But I don't see any contender skills in him.
