Brandon W.K. Wolff (born October 18, 1975) is an American mixed martial artist and former Navy SEAL, who is perhaps best known for his two-fight stint in the Welterweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
Mixed martial arts career
Wolff made his professional MMA debut on January 5, 2002, when he faced David Santiago at Warriors of the New Millennium 4. He won the fight via first-round KO. Following this win, Wolff would compile a professional record of 7–3, with notable fights against UFC veterans Riki Fukuda and Chad Reiner before being signed by the Ultimate Fighting Championship in late 2008.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
In late 2008, Wolff signed with the UFC. He was expected to face Jon Koppenhaver in his debut; however, Koppenhaver would be released from the promotion after refusing to fight Wolff and for his comments on deceased UFC fighter Evan Tanner. Wolff would instead make his debut against Ben Saunders at UFC: Fight for the Troops on December 10, 2008. He lost the fight via first-round TKO (knees).
In his first fight after his UFC release, Wolff faced Dylan Clay at X-1: Nations Collide on June 14, 2010. He lost the fight via kimura, dropping Wolff to three losses in a row.
