Mixed martial arts career
Ultimate Fighting Championship
Jacoby was expected to make his UFC debut against Brad Tavares on October 29, 2011 at UFC 137, replacing an injured Tim Credeur. However, Tavares himself was forced out of the bout with an injury and replaced by fellow newcomer Clifford Starks. 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. He was later released from the UFC, following an 0-2 run in the promotion.
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.
World Series of Fighting
Glory World Series
Jacoby was a last-minute replacement for pro boxer Manuel Quezada at the Road to Glory USA light heavyweight (209 lbs.) tournament in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He had never competed in a professional kickboxing match before the tournament. 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 title. He earned a check for $20,000 and a one-year contract with Glory World Series.
Jacoby fought at Glory 9: New York - 2013 95kg Slam in New York City, New York on June 22, 2013. 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.
He was set to fight Makoto Uehara at Glory 12: New York - Lightweight World Championship Tournament in New York City on November 23, 2013 but the fight was switched to Glory 13: Tokyo - Welterweight World Championship Tournament in Tokyo, Japan on December 21, 2013.
