Mission accomplished for Bendigo's Jimmy "The Brute" Chute..
Bendigo and Australia’s Jimmy Crute won the MMA Tuesday Night Contender Series and earned a 4 match UFC contract.
The current Hex light-heavyweight champion, 22-year-old Crute had the chance to earn a UFC contract when he faced off against American Chris Birchler in front of Dana White.
A slow start for Jimmy but then a flurry of punches was enough for the referee to step in and award the light heavyweight the win by TKO.
Bendigo's Jimmy Crute said on his Facebook page "I honestly don't have words to describe this feeling. Thank you to my family for supporting me every step of the way, I wouldn't be here without them. My coaches @samgreco_k1 @stewieshouseofbjj I look up to these two men so much, they aren't just coaches they are family. My teammates, I wish I could name every single person.
Thank you, everyone, for all the messages of support, I really felt the love over here and I am so proud to represent my country
This is only the beginning, I am only getting warmed up.
Adelaide, I'll see you soon
