Jon Fitch is among the best welterweights in mixed martial arts (MMA), reeling off a staggering eight consecutive victories in the talent-rich Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 170-pound division from 2005 to 2008. The win streak is a remarkable achievement that only he shares with the legendary Royce Gracie and UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva.
Born in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and a graduate of Carroll High School, Jon attended Purdue University where he was a four-year varsity letter winner for the Boilermakers' prestigious wrestling team. Fitch, who captained the squad in his senior season, parlayed his wrestling prowess into a brilliantly successful mixed martial arts career shortly after graduation, honing his skills at the famed American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) in San Jose, California.
Jon has amassed more than 20 professional MMA victories during the course of his career while rising to stardom in the world’s fastest growing sport. He's a decorated Guerilla Jiu-Jitsu black belt, the first person to earn the honor from the esteemed Dave Camarillo. Jon, a perennial number one contender, dishes out patented beat downs to all comers, doing whatever it takes to one day soon attain his ultimate goal of becoming a UFC world champion.
