Brad Kohler (born May 26, 1964) is an American mixed martial artist who competes in the Heavyweight division. Kohler has competed for the UFC, RINGS and DEEP.[1]

Career[edit]

Kohler's most notable fight occurred at UFC 22 against Steve Judson, where he scored one of the more infamous knockouts in MMA history. 30 seconds into Round 1, Kohler feigned a takedown attempt, only to land an explosive right cross. Judson was knocked out instantly, and suffered a deep gash to his chin at the point of impact. Remaining unconscious and showing signs of having difficulty breathing, referees immediately signaled to the medical staff who administered oxygen treatment to Judson, who was taken out via stretcher to the local hospital.

He made his return to MMA in 2010 after a near 6-year hiatus against Travis Fulton where he lost via KO in the first round 1:01 at CFX - Mayhem in Minneapolis.
