Chance Rencountre (born December 31, 1986) is an American professional mixed martial artist competing in the Welterweight division in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). A professional since 2012, he has also competed for Bellator and Titan FC.

Background[edit]

Rencountre was born to a single mother in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, which is part of the reservation of the Osage Nation. His mother had to work 3 jobs to support her son growing up.[1] As homage to his heritage Rencountre carries the flag of the Osage nation when entering the ring.[1][3] His sister Alexis Rencountre is the Osage Nation's elections supervisor. He is the first member of the Osage tribe to compete in the UFC.[4]

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Bellator MMA[edit]

After amassing a record of 8 wins and 1 loss, Rencountre signed with Bellator MMA. He made his debut at Bellator 151, losing to Justin Patterson by split decision.[5] In his second fight for the promotion, he faced Jake Lindsey at Bellator 171 and won the fight by split decision.[6]

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Rencountre made his UFC debut on June 1, 2018, when he came in as a late substitute for Niko Price to face Belal Muhammad at UFC Fight Night: Rivera vs. Moraes.[7]

Rencountre was initially suppose to fight Randy Brown at UFC Fight Night: Cejudo vs. Dillashaw, but Brown pulled out in the week leading up to the event.[8] Dwight Grant was soon announced as his replacement, but it was later reported that he was unable to be cleared to fight due to an "eye issue".[9] Promotional newcomer Kyle Stewart was then announced as Rencountre's new opponent.[10] Rencountre won the fight via a rear-naked choke submission in the first round.

Rencountre faced Ismail Naurdiev on July 6, 2019, at UFC 239.[11] He won the fight via unanimous decision.[12]

Rencountre faced Lyman Good on November 2, 2019 at UFC 244.[13] He lost the fight via TKO in the third round.[14]
