Ryan Jimmo vs. Igor Pokrajac set for UFC 161 in Winnipeg

Two light heavyweights are set to throw down at UFC 161 as Alberta’s Ryan Jimmo will battle Igor Pokrajac in Winnipeg, Manitoba scheduled for June 15, 2013 inside the MTS Centre.

Neil Davidson of the Canadian Press was the first to announce this news as UFC 161 is set to debut in Winnipeg.

Jimmo is 1-1 inside the Octagon. His debut lasted only seconds when he blasted Anthony Perosh with a devastating KO.

He comes off a decision loss to James Te Huna last month, snapping his 17-fight win streak that stems back from 2007.

Pokrajac has earned four wins in his last five and has beaten Canadian Krzysztof Soszynski in the past.

UFC 161 features a bantamweight championship main-event between title holder Renan Barao and Eddie Wineland.
