‘Sick matchup between some of the new blood at 205‘ – Brett Okamoto on Twitter
Jimmy Crute is currently on a 2 match win streak, with both being first round victories. His recent win over Modestas Bukauskas on the 18th of October, last year, just showed how much raw power, the former full time forklift driver from Australia has. He has just been beaten once in his professional MMA career (12-1). As for Johnny Walker (18-5) – the Brazilian is coming off a victory over Ryan Spann, knocking him out in the very first round. The 6ft 6, Brazilian has an incredible reach and Jimmy Crute should be wary of that.
A win for Johnny Walker will propel him close to the top 5 in the light-heavyweight rankings whereas, a win for Jimmy would surely send warning signals to the other light-heavyweights, that the Australian means business!
