TUF Nations Finale’s Ryan Jimmo: ‘The Blackzilians weren’t a right fit for me’

MMA Oddsbreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with TUF Nations Finale light heavyweight Ryan Jimmo as he prepares for his preliminary card bout this Wednesday (April 16, 2014) against Sean O’Connell at the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.

The former MFC 205 pound champion recently switched from the Blackzilians Gym at Imperial Athletics to Power MMA in Arizona and explained why:

“I was with the Blackzilians for a little while and it just wasn’t the right fit for me. It’s not the same kind of people. I didn’t get along with a lot of the people down there…I kind of got away from my roots. When I was in Edmonton, I got to use my karate with my kickboxing and it worked out really well. When I went down there, it was a lot of Dutch kickboxing which wasn’t quite my style.”
