Art Jimmerson is a retired boxer who competed at super middleweight, light heavyweight, cruiserweight and heavyweight. As an amateur, Jimmerson was the 1983 National Golden Gloves Middleweight champion. He finished his boxing career in 2002, with a record of 33–18.

Biography[edit]

In November 1993, Jimmerson competed at the very first UFC competition, UFC 1. He fought Royce Gracie while wearing only one boxing glove, earning the nickname Art 'One Glove' Jimmerson in the process. Since there were no gloves in the first UFC, Art didn't want to get his jab hand hurt, so he wore a boxing glove in the match on his left hand.[1]

Jimmerson lost to Gracie by submission after being taken to the ground and tapping out two minutes into the first round, ending his mixed martial arts career, at which point he returned to boxing.[2]

Jimmerson is now the head boxing coach at the UFC GYM in Torrance, CA.

Jimmerson has expressed an interest in fighting former YouTube sensation and UFC fighter, Kimbo Slice, in a boxing match.[3]
