Rob Kimmons (born January 30, 1981) is an American mixed martial artist who most recently competed at middleweight for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He is also known as "The Rosedale Reaper".

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Rob Kimmons made his professional mixed martial arts debut on November 21, 2003 for the HOOKnSHOOT promotion. He knocked out David Webster in the first round to notch his first professional win. Rob won two more times in 2004 and was signed to World Extreme Cagefighting and was given a fight against Joe Riggs for the vacant middleweight title. Kimmons lost the fight in the first round. After winning six straight fights since the loss to Riggs, Kimmons took his second loss this time to Ryan Jensen.

In July 2007, Kimmons faced UFC veteran, Marvin Eastman for the International Fighting Organization's middleweight title. Kimmons lost the fight by decision. Kimmons then dropped down to the welterweight division two months later in order to face Tristan Yunker for the IFO's welterweight title. Kimmons won the title in the first round.

He currently holds a 3rd degree black belt in American Jujitsu under Steve Crawford.

Kimmons now trains out of K2l's Grindhouse in Lee Summit Missouri with the likes of James Krause (WEC) and Eric Marriott (Bellator).

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Kimmons made his debut defeating Rob Yundt on the undercard of TUF 7 Finale. Kimmons submitted Yundt with a guillotine choke in round 1.

He had his second fight for the company on the UFC Fight Night 15 card taking on Dan Miller. Miller dominated the fight and submitted Kimmons early in round one. Kimmons bounced back with a win on the UFC Fight Night 18 card by chocking Joe Vedepo unconscious. Kimmons won submission of the night honors.

After suffering a TKO loss to Jorge Rivera, Kimmons plans to move to the UFC welterweight division instead of middleweight.

Kimmons was scheduled to face Mike Pierce on March 21, 2010 at UFC Live: Vera vs. Jones,[1] but Kimmons was forced off the card with an injury. Pierce is now set to face UFC newcomer Julio Paulino.[2]

Kimmons then faced Steve Steinbeiss on August 1, 2010 at UFC on Versus 2[3] and won via unanimous decision.

Kimmons lost to Kyle Noke on November 13, 2010 at UFC 122 via submission (rear-naked choke) at 1:33 of round 2.

Kimmons next faced Dongi Yang on March 3, 2011 at UFC Live: Sanchez vs. Kampmann.[4] He lost the fight via TKO due to punches near the end of the second round and was subsequently released from the promotion.[5]

Post UFC[edit]

Kimmons faced King of the Cage veteran Brendan Seguin in Kansas City, Kan., for Titan FC 19 on July 29, 2011. “Now that I’m out of that, I can’t lose, a loss is not okay,” Kimmons told MMAWeekly. “I never want to lose again. I want to hurry up and get back into the UFC.”[6] He lost the fight via unanimous decision.
