Peter Alan Williams (born July 10, 1975) is a former American mixed martial arts fighter who fought out of Ken Shamrock's fight team the Lion's Den. Williams was ranked as high as the #6 top Heavyweight fighter in the world as of May 2000. He is perhaps best known for having the first head kick knockout in the UFC.
Williams and Jerry Bohlander were on the same high school wrestling team and Williams had started training at the Lion's Den about a month after Bohlander. Williams' favorite submission hold is the kneebar.
Williams was the winner of the "SuperBrawl 2" tournament in Honolulu, Hawaii. He beat Donald de la Cruz and Joe Charles by strikes and kneebar, respectively.
Fighting in the UFC, Williams defeated former UFC Heavyweight Champion Mark Coleman and met Kevin Randleman at UFC 23 for the UFC Heavyweight Championship after it was vacated by Bas Rutten. Williams lost the bout by judges' decision.
Williams has competed in the RINGS organization in Japan and was the runner up in the 1996 Pancrase Neo Blood Tournament.
