UFC 161

June 15th, 2013

Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

MTS Centre

————————————————————-

Ryan Jimmo saw an unprecedented seventeen-fight win streak come to an end at UFC on Fuel TV 7, with a unanimous decision loss to James Te Huna. In his UFC debut, Jimmo tied the record for fastest knockout with a seven-second KO of Anthony Perosh.

Igor Pokrajac was looking at a two-fight losing streak, following a unanimous decision loss to Joey Beltran at UFC on FX 6. The fight was later overtrurned to a no contest, when Beltran later tested positive for a banned substance. The fight before, Pokrajac had a three-fight win streak come to an end, when he was submitted by Vinny Magalhaes in in the second round at UFC 152.

Despite losing his first two fights inside the UFC, Mitch Clarke earned another chance for a win after a valiant effort in a split decision loss to Anton Kuivanen at UFC 149. Clarke made his promotional debut in December of 2011, but lost via second round TKO to John Cholish.

John Maguire began his UFC career with two straight wins over Justin Edwards and DaMarques Johnson. But back-to-back unanimous decision losses to John Hathaway and Matt Riddle has sparked the move to drop to the 155-pound divison.
