Christopher Ross Wilson (born June 7, 1977) is an American mixed martial arts fighter. Wilson is perhaps best known for his four fight stint with the Ultimate Fighting Championship from 2008–2009. Since his UFC release, Wilson has mainly competed in Brazil.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Wilson made his professional mixed martial arts debut on December 13, 2003, when he faced Elder Pyatt at Rumble at the Roseland 10. He won his debut via KO punch, ten seconds into the first round.[2]

Following this impressive win, Wilson would compile a record of 15–4 (1), with notable victories over UFC veterans Jay Hieron, Pat Healy, and Rory Markham before signing with UFC in early 2008.

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Wilson made his UFC debut against Jon Fitch at UFC 82 on March 1, 2008.[3] He lost the fight via unanimous decision.[4] Wilson was then expected to face Steve Bruno at UFC 86 on July 5, 2008,[5] however, the fight was rescheduled and instead took place at UFC 87 on August 9, 2008.[6] He won the fight via unanimous decision.

In his third fight in the promotion, Wilson faced promotional newcomer John Howard at UFC 94 on January 31, 2009.[7] Wilson lost the fight via split decision, putting his record at 1–2 in the promotion.

He then faced Mike Pyle at UFC Fight Night 19 on September 16, 2009.[8] He lost the fight via guillotine choke submission, and was subsequently released from the promotion.[9]

Post-UFC career[edit]

In his first fight since his UFC release, Wilson faced Keith Wisniewski at HFC 7: Validation on April 9, 2011.[10] He lost the fight via unanimous decision.

Wilson then faced Wellington Oliveira at Brazilian FC: Desafio dos Imortais on December 16, 2011, defeating Oliveira via rear-naked choke.[11]

He faced Irwing Machado at Brazilian FC 3: Lutadores Imortais on August 11, 2012. Wilson won the fight via D'arce choke in the first round.[12] In his next fight, Wilson faced Leandro Silva at Predador FC 23 on March 9, 2013. He lost the fight via split decision.[13]

Wilson faced Walmir Lazaro at Shooto Brazil 42 on August 25, 2013. He lost the fight via KO (punch).[14]
