Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Ryan Jimmo is Your New MFC Light Heavyweight Champion

Last night at MFC 28, Cage Potato guest blogger Ryan Jimmo took on fellow Canadian Dwayne Lewis for Maximum Fighting Championship’s vacant light heavyweight title.  I don’t want to spoil the fight for those of you who didn’t see it live.  Let’s just say that two men entered and one man left.  Then the other man left after being declared the new LHW champion.   Did I mention Lewis left the cage with a purple, bleeding thigh and a broken orbital bone? Yeah, that happened.   

Also of note from last night’s card, Drew Fickett earned his fifth straight submission victory over fellow UFC washout Matt Veach.  Despite being taken down early, Fickett kept his composure and locked in an armbar only 36 seconds into the fight.  And remember Rodney Wallace?  He lost to WEC/IFL vet Emmanuel Newton, who is probably going to get the first shot at Ryan Jimmo’s title. 

A post fight interview with Ryan can be found here, and full results from MFC 28 after the jump.

What Jimmo did to Lewis' eye, however it happened, has to be the nastiest thing I've ever seen in MMA. Even worse than Corey Hills leg break/rubber banding. Very close between the two, though.

looks like he absorbed a few blows to the face based on that image.

Wow!!! Those Ryan Jimmo blogs must have really made people NOT GIVE A FUCKING SHIT about this guy or, what piece of shit fighting organization he was about to have a belt hand fed to him in.

Did anyone else think that Dwayne Lewis' eye was going to explode? Also the Whitson/Demarce fight was fucking awesome. One of the best fights I've seen in other non-UFC promotions..

Am I the only one that though that how he described how it felt to be the new NFC Light Heavyweight Champion as “super duper” to be completely hilarious?

I actually thought about working a super duper into the title of the article...

If you guys didn't catch the fights... Westcott and Demarce got robbed by the judges.. I swear Cecil Peoples was there last night!

As much as I think his guest blogs are boring, he is a good fighter. Congratulations Jimmo. I still think of him as the poor mans Rich Franklin.
