Jacob Noe (born July 29, 1980) is an American professional mixed martial artist who competes in Bellator's Light Heavyweight division. He has formerly competed for Strikeforce.[1]

Background[edit]

Noe was born in Brighton, Tennessee and raised in Memphis. Noe grew up in a rough neighborhood and began training in karate at the age of six, and then transitioned into Tae Kwon Do when he was 16. Noe attended Raleigh-Egypt High School along with fellow Bellator Light Heavyweight and former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, who Noe would befriend. Noe was a talented football player, going to the state finals with his high school team and personally held the state record for most tackles in a single game. However, during his senior year he injured his neck in a car accident which resulted in the end of his football career. Noe then joined a local boxing team with "Rampage" Jackson which evolved into mixed martial arts training as Jackson would teach Noe wrestling techniques and Noe would teach Jackson striking techniques.[2]

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Noe made his professional debut in 2000. He became more active in 2007 after a few fights to tune up his craft and didn't fight again until 2008. Noe compiled a professional record of 3-1 with one no contest before making the under card with Strikeforce.
