Jason Ellis (born 11 October 1971) is an Australian satellite radio host, professional skateboarder, mixed martial arts fighter, truck racer, boxer, rock singer, and actor. Based in the United States, Ellis hosts The Jason Ellis Show weekday afternoons (3:00 PM-7:00 EST) on the Sirius XM Radio channel, Faction.
Athletics and Sports
Ellis moved to the United States (US) at the age of seventeen to become a professional skateboarder and subsequently achieved professional status for nearly two decades before retiring in 2006.
One of the six Big Air competitors to compete in both 2004 and 2005, Jason was suffering from a concussion in 2005 and didn't make the final, finishing 10th overall. Still involved in the skate community, Ellis has recently performed Skate Demos alongside Tony Hawk, is a perennial X-Games competitor in the Mega Ramp competition, and was the host of the annual 'Tony Hawk's Boom Boom Huckjam'.
In 2001, Ellis set the Guinness World Record for the biggest drop on a skateboard, jumping into a 70-foot skateboard ramp. However, this record was broken in 2006 by fellow professional skateboarder Danny Way at Las Vegas' Hard Rock Café.
Mixed martial arts
Ellis formerly trained in the Team Quest camp located in Murrieta, California under the direction of Dan Henderson, Jason "Mayhem" Miller, and Muhammed Lawal. He also trains with Justin Fortune at Fortune Boxing Gym in Hollywood California.
Mixed martial arts record
Ellis made his mixed martial arts debut against Brazilian jiu-jitsu specialist Tony Gianopulos on 6 February 2009 winning via guillotine choke submission.
After a three year hiatus from MMA, Ellis returned to the sport on 14 July 2012 defeating UFC veteran Gabe Ruediger via KO (punches) in the second round in a celebrity non-professional boxing fight. Gabe Ruediger has since challenged Ellis to a re-match, citing that he did not take the first fight seriously. After being dropped by Ellis, Gabe lost their rematch to a decision.
