Jeffery Ryan Hougland[1] (born August 2, 1978) is a retired American professional mixed martial artist. A professional from 2002 until 2012, he competed for the UFC and WEC.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Hougland started fighting professionally in 2002. He fought once for World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) at WEC 6 and lost to future Strikeforce Lightweight Champion Gilbert Melendez via second-round TKO. After losing his next fight, he won eight fights in a row. He then signed with the UFC.

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Hougland made his promotional debut at UFC 132 against fellow UFC newcomer Donny Walker.[2] Hougland showed off an excellent ground game with multiple submission attempts throughout all three rounds. Hougland won the fight via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27).

Hougland's second UFC outing was expected to take place against Mike Easton on October 1, 2011 at UFC on Versus 6.[3] However, Hougland was forced out of the bout with an injury and replaced by Byron Bloodworth.[4]

Hougland was briefly linked to a bout against Renan Barão on July 7, 2012 at UFC 148.[5] However, Hougland served as a replacement for Mike Easton and faced Yves Jabouin on May 15, 2012 at UFC on Fuel TV: Korean Zombie vs. Poirier.[6] Hougland lost the fight via unanimous decision after getting dominated by Jabouin's superior standup.

He was expected to face Takeya Mizugaki at UFC 151 on September 1, 2012.[7] However, after UFC 151 was cancelled, his bout with Mizugaki was rescheduled for November 10, 2012 at UFC on Fuel TV 6.[8] Hougland was dominated for all three rounds, losing via unanimous decision (30-25, 30-27, 30-27). Hougland was subsequently released from the promotion.[9]
