Biography[edit]

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.
