Early life[edit]

Claude Patrick was born and raised in Mississauga, Ontario, just outside of Toronto. His parents are from Jamaica. Patrick's martial arts journey started with karate at the age of thirteen. His parents signed him up for three months, then he took up Muay Thai and jiu-jitsu, and has been using those styles ever since.”[2]

Mixed martial arts[edit]

Patrick made his professional debut in 2002. He has fought for smaller promotions including King of the Cage Canada, The Fight Club and the International Fight League. In 2006 he moved to Montreal, Quebec for 8 months to train with Georges St-Pierre.[2] Before signing with the UFC, he amassed a career of 11 wins and 1 loss.

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

In March 2010, the UFC announced it had signed Patrick to a four-fight contract.[3]

He made his UFC debut on against Ricardo Funch on June 12, 2010 at UFC 115.[4] In the second round, Patrick submitted his opponent with a guillotine choke.

Patrick next defeated TUF 9 winner James Wilks via unanimous decision at UFC 120 on October 16, 2010.[5]

Patrick faced Daniel Roberts on April 30, 2011 at UFC 129.[6] Patrick won via unanimous decision in a close fight after winning the first two rounds.

Patrick replaced an injured Rory MacDonald at UFC 140[7] and faced Brian Ebersole, losing for the first time in the UFC via split decision.

Patrick was expected to face James Head on July 21, 2012 at UFC 149.[8] However, Patrick was forced out of the bout with an injury and replaced by Brian Ebersole.[9]

After not stepping into the octagon for two years, Patrick is finally healthy and was looking for a spot on the UFC 174 card in Vancouver, British Columbia.[10] However, Patrick never had a fight scheduled for the event.

Personal life[edit]

Patrick hails from Mississauga, Ontario, where MMA only recently became legalized. He trains with UFC fighters Mark Bocek and Sean Pierson and co-owns the Elite Training Center in Mississauga.

Patrick was the victim of a highly publicized taser gun attack following an MMA event in Gatineau, Quebec. He woke up two days later in the hospital after doctors put him in a medically induced coma. He states that he has no recollection of the attack.[11]
