Dustin Jacoby (born April 4, 1988) is an American mixed martial artist and kickboxer. In kickboxing, he has competed for GLORY as a Light Heavyweight and in MMA he has competed for the UFC, Bellator, the World Series of Fighting, and Titan FC as both a Light Heavyweight and a Middleweight.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Jacoby was expected to make his UFC debut against Brad Tavares on October 29, 2011 at UFC 137, replacing an injured Tim Credeur.[1] However, Tavares himself was forced out of the bout with an injury and replaced by fellow newcomer Clifford Starks.[2] Jacoby lost the fight via unanimous decision.

In his second UFC outing, Jacoby was submitted by Chris Camozzi via guillotine choke on January 28, 2012 at UFC on Fox 2.[3] He was later released from the UFC, following an 0-2 run in the promotion.[4]

Post-UFC career[edit]

Jacoby bounced back from his UFC stint with a pair of victories on the regional circuit. He knocked out Billy Johnson in 45 seconds at an Indiana-based Hoosier Fight Club event on June 2, 2012, followed by a doctor stoppage win over Tim Williams for the Cafe Fury FC middleweight title.[5]

World Series of Fighting[edit]

Jacoby made his WSOF debut at its inaugural event on November 3, 2012, losing to fellow UFC veteran David Branch via unanimous decision.[6]

Bellator MMA[edit]

Jacoby stepped in as a replacement for an injured Marcus Sursa to face Muhammed Lawal on September 5, 2014 at Bellator 123.[7] He lost the fight via TKO in the second round.

Jacoby faced John Salter on January 16, 2015 at Bellator 132.[8] He lost the fight via submission in the second round.

Kickboxing career[edit]

GLORY World Series[edit]

Jacoby was a last-minute replacement for professional boxer Manuel Quezada at the Road to GLORY USA Light Heavyweight (209 lbs.) Tournament in Tulsa, Oklahoma.[9] He had never competed in a professional kickboxing match before the tournament.[10] He pulled off a major upset, knocking out International Sport Karate Association Heavyweight Champion Randy Blake, fellow mixed martial artist Roy Boughton and 19-0 prospect Brian Collette en route to winning the Tournament Championship.[9] He earned a check for $20,000 and a one-year contract with Glory World Series.[9]

He lost to Michael Duut by TKO after being knocked down three time in round one at GLORY 5: London in London, England on March 23, 2013.[11][12][13]

Jacoby fought at GLORY 9: New York: 2013 95kg Slam in New York City, New York on June 22, 2013.[14][15][16] Rematching Brian Collette in the quarter-finals, he took a close majority decision win. He then faced Danyo Ilunga in the semis and put up a good fight early, but fell behind in rounds two and three as he was hacked at with leg kicks and lost a unanimous decision.[17][18][19]

He was set to fight Makoto Uehara at GLORY 12: New York: Lightweight World Championship Tournament in New York City on November 23, 2013[20] but the fight was switched to GLORY 13: Tokyo: Welterweight World Championship Tournament in Tokyo, Japan on December 21, 2013.[21][22] He lost to Uehara by split decision.[23][24][25][26]

He was set to face Robert Thomas in the semifinals of the GLORY 14: Zagreb in Zagreb, Croatia on March 8, 2014[27] but Thomas withdrew for undisclosed reasons and was replaced by Alex Pereira.[28]
