Jimmy Crute

The Brute


Winless streak hits four
Light HeavyweightUFC
July 8, 2023
Crute lost to Alonzo Menifield via submission (guillotine choke) at 1:55 of Round 2 at UFC 290 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Crute and Menfield fought this past February, with Crute fortunate to emerge with a majority draw. He wasn't as lucky here. Hopelessly outclassed by his opponent in terms of speed and power on the feet, Crute fired off five takedown attempts in the brief bout. He landed one, oddly right before the finish, but Menifield quickly worked his way back to his feet and choked Crute out in an instant. Jimmy appeared visibly dejected following the stoppage, immediately ripping his gloves off and leaving them in the center of the cage, a move that typically signals retirement. We'll find out shortly whether that is the case or not, but with an 0-3-1 record in his last four fights, Crute's roster spot is in serious jeopardy regardless.

Menifield rematch scheduled

May 17, 2023
Crute will fight Alonzo Menifield in a light heavyweight bout at UFC 290 in Paradise on July 8, according to Marcel Dorff of Eurosport.nl.
Crute and Menifield fought to a majority draw at UFC 284. They will fight again six pay-per-views later. During their 284 fight, Crute won the eyes of judge Derek Cleary. However, Menifield was deducted one point for fence grabbing and may have won had it not been for that offense.
Digs deep to emerge with draw

Crute and Alonzo Menifield fought to a majority draw (29-27, 28-28, 28-28) at UFC 284 on Saturday in Perth, Australia.
Crute didn't show up for this fight hoping for a draw, heck, he entered as a -175 favorite, but considering all that happened in the bout, he should consider himself fortunate that was the end result. Jimmy started on fire, landing 4-of-5 takedowns in Round 1 alone. Yet, it was Menifield's power that was the fight's greatest difference-maker. He knocked Crute down once in each of the first two rounds. Jimmy was seemingly out on his feet on more than one occasion, but somehow survived. A point deduction for Menifield following a Round 3 fence grab allowed Crute to escape with the draw. Crute is very physically strong and an excellent wrestler, but his cardio is questionable and his offensive game one-dimensional. Set to turn 27 years of age in early-March, Crute is now without a victory (0-2-1) in his last three appearances.

Needs knee surgery, out until 2023

February 17, 2022
Crute announced via Instagram that he will undergo knee reconstruction surgery and won't compete again until 2023.
Crute didn't indicate which knee needed to be operated on, but it sounds like the injury was concerning enough to warrant shutting things down for the rest of 2022. The 25-year-old expressed that the injury could have turned into a career-ending one without surgery, so it seems like a smart decision. Crute last fought on Dec. 4, 2021 when he lost to Jamahal Hill via KO.
