Jared Rosholt (born August 4, 1986) is an American mixed martial artist currently competing in the Heavyweight division of the World Series of Fighting. A professional competitor since 2011, Rosholt has also competed for the UFC, Titan FC, and Legacy FC. He is the younger brother of former mixed martial artist Jake Rosholt.
Rosholt was born and raised in Sandpoint, Idaho, attending Sandpoint High School before moving to Oklahoma his junior year where he attended Ponca City High School. Rosholt competed in wrestling as well as football. In wrestling, Rosholt was a member of Wrestling USA Magazine's 2005 All-America Dream Team, a four-time State Champion, and a two-time national runner-up. Rosholt continued wrestling at Oklahoma State University, following in the footsteps of his older brother, Jake, a three-time National Champion for the Cowboys. Jared Rosholt went on to be a three-time All-American and finished his collegiate career with an overall record of 125-27. That record qualified him as the winningest heavyweight in the history of the Oklahoma State wrestling program. His 125 wins also qualify as the fifth-most victories by a wrestler in any weight class in Oklahoma State history. Rosholt finished fourth in his division at the 2008 NCAA wrestling championships, third in 2009, and second in 2010. Rosholt's combination of size and speed had many wondering if he would follow the lead of his older brother Jake into MMA competition.
Mixed martial arts career
Rosholt made his professional mixed martial arts debut on February 26, 2011 where he won by submission (punches) in just 1:17 of the first round.
Rosholt came to fight on two days notice as a replacement to fight at Titan FC 18: Pulver vs. Davidson against Kirk Grinlinton. He won the fight by technical knockout at just 1:37 of the first round.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
Rosholt announced in mid-September that he has signed with the UFC. He made his debut against fellow newcomer Walt Harris on November 30, 2013 at The Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale. After being dropped in the first round, Rosholt rallied back in the second and third rounds, winning the fight via unanimous decision.
Rosholt was expected to face promotional newcomer Alexey Oleynik on January 25, 2014 at UFC on Fox 10. However, Oliynyk was forced out of the bout with an injury and Rosholt was pulled from the card altogether.
