Dustin Kimura vs. George Roop

Dustin Kimura vs. George Roop heads to TUF Nations Finale in Quebec. The event, which serves as the live finale for “The Ultimate Fighter Nations: Canada vs. Australia” reality series, takes place April 16 at Colisee Pepsi in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. It’s expected to air on FOX Sports 1 following prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

Dustin Kimura (11-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) bounced back from his first defeat three months ago, notching a first round submission victory over promotional newcomer Jon Delos Reyes. The Hawaiian is a very talented submission artist, and most opponents should avoid going to the ground with him as it is dangerous territory. His takedown defense is not great, but that doesn’t matter because he is not at all afraid to go to the canvas. In fact, he feels very comfortable being in the bottom position, as he has a very active and dangerous guard, scoring an armbar from his back in his last bout. Kimura is also very good with sweeps, transitions, and especially taking the backs of his opponents. His striking is average at best, but he does have a nice jab, and possesses some power for a bantamweight. Kimura’s chin is not the best, but he does have good recovery. The Hawaiian has good conditioning as well, so I expect him to have enough in his tank for 15 minutes of action, should the fight go the distance.
