Canadian fighter Jimmo, 34, dies after hit-and-run

Edmonton police say a dark pick-up truck hit Jimmo after he had been involved in an altercation.

CANADIAN MMA FIGHTER Ryan Jimmo, 34, died yesterday after a hit-and-run incident in Edmonton.

MMAJunkie confirmed the victim to be Jimmo last night after CBC News reported an altercation in the early hours of Sunday morning. The incident is being dealt with by the city’s homicide unit, who are searching for a dark pick-up truck which caused the fatality.

The report says that Jimmo “walked up to the occupants of the other vehicle. When he began to walk away, police say the suspects’ vehicle accelerated and struck him before leaving the scene.”

Jimmo fought seven times in the UFC, most recently in May 2015, with three wins. His overall record in a career that began in 2007 was 19 – 5.
