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[edit]

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.[1] 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.[2]

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

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.[3] Wolff would instead make his debut against Ben Saunders at UFC: Fight for the Troops on December 10, 2008.[4] He lost the fight via first-round TKO (knees).[5]

In his second fight for the promotion, Wolff faced Yoshiyuki Yoshida at UFC 98 on May 23, 2009.[6] He lost the fight via guillotine choke, and was subsequently released from the promotion.[7]

Post-UFC career[edit]

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.[8]

Personal life[edit]

Before fighting professionally, Wolff was a U.S. Navy SEAL.[9] Wolff has a twin brother, Brenton, who is also a mixed martial artist.
