Dustin Jacoby (born April 4, 1988) is an American mixed martial artist and kickboxer. In kickboxing, he has competed for GLORY, and in MMA, he has competed for the UFC, Bellator, World Series of Fighting, and Titan FC. He has fought as both a Light Heavyweight and a Middleweight.

As of 28 September 2016, he is ranked the #9 middleweight in the world by LiverKick.com.[1]

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Jacoby was expected to make his UFC debut against Brad Tavares on October 29, 2011 at UFC 137, replacing an injured Tim Credeur.[2] However, Tavares himself was forced out of the bout with an injury and replaced by fellow newcomer Clifford Starks.[3] Jacoby lost the fight via unanimous decision.

In his second UFC outing, Jacoby was submitted by Chris Camozzi via guillotine choke on January 28, 2012 at UFC on Fox 2.[4] He was later released from the UFC, following an 0-2 run in the promotion.[5]

Post-UFC career[edit]

Jacoby bounced back from his UFC stint with a pair of victories on the regional circuit. He knocked out Billy Johnson in 45 seconds at an Indiana-based Hoosier Fight Club event on June 2, 2012, followed by a doctor stoppage win over Tim Williams for the Cage Fury FC middleweight title.[6]

World Series of Fighting[edit]

Jacoby made his WSOF debut at its inaugural event on November 3, 2012, losing to fellow UFC veteran David Branch via unanimous decision.[7]

Bellator MMA[edit]

Jacoby stepped in as a replacement for an injured Marcus Sursa to face Muhammed Lawal on September 5, 2014 at Bellator 123.[8] He lost the fight via TKO in the second round.

Jacoby faced John Salter on January 16, 2015 at Bellator 132.[9] He lost the fight via submission in the second round.

Kickboxing career[edit]

GLORY World Series[edit]

Jacoby was a last-minute replacement for professional boxer Manuel Quezada at the Road to GLORY USA Light Heavyweight (209 lbs.) Tournament in Tulsa, Oklahoma.[10] He had never competed in a professional kickboxing match before the tournament.[11] He pulled off a major upset, knocking out International Sport Karate Association Heavyweight Champion Randy Blake, fellow mixed martial artist Roy Boughton and 19-0 prospect Brian Collette en route to winning the Tournament Championship.[10] He earned a check for $20,000 and a one-year contract with Glory World Series.[10]

He lost to Michael Duut by TKO after being knocked down three time in round one at GLORY 5: London in London, England on March 23, 2013.[12][13][14]

Jacoby fought at GLORY 9: New York: 2013 95kg Slam in New York City, New York on June 22, 2013.[15][16][17] Rematching Brian Collette in the quarter-finals, he took a close majority decision win. He then faced Danyo Ilunga in the semis and put up a good fight early, but fell behind in rounds two and three as he was hacked at with leg kicks and lost a unanimous decision.[18][19][20]

He was set to fight Makoto Uehara at GLORY 12: New York: Lightweight World Championship Tournament in New York City on November 23, 2013[21] but the fight was switched to GLORY 13: Tokyo: Welterweight World Championship Tournament in Tokyo, Japan on December 21, 2013.[22][23] He lost to Uehara by split decision.[24][25][26][27]

He was set to face Robert Thomas in the semifinals of the GLORY 14: Zagreb in Zagreb, Croatia on March 8, 2014[28] but Thomas withdrew for undisclosed reasons and was replaced by Alex Pereira.[29]
