Mixed martial arts record from Sherdog

Jonathan Goulet (born July 13, 1979) is a retired French Canadian mixed martial artist. He has most recently fought as a Welterweight for the UFC.[1] Goulet earned his nickname, "The Road Warrior," after taking a fight on very short notice, traveling to the fight venue without his trainers or cornermen.[2] He is noted for his ever-changing hair colors and using his hair to advertise sponsors.[3]


Goulet is from Quebec, Canada and began training in Kenpo Karate when he was 14 years old but does not hold a high rank in the martial art. Goulet also began Brazilian jiu-jitsu when he was 20. Before becoming a professional fighter, Goulet worked in construction and also as a bouncer. It was during his time working as a bouncer at 20 years of age, when he began to pursue MMA fighting. Goulet had removed one man from the bar he was working at, but afterwards was "jumped" by three of the man's friends, who badly beat the young Goulet. After this incident, Goulet decided to make sure that nothing like that would ever happen again, and began training more in the martial arts.[1]

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Goulet made his professional mixed martial arts debut in 2001 and fought almost exclusively in his home country of Canada, with notable wins over Tony Fryklund and John Alessio, before being signed by the UFC.

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Taking a 13-5 MMA record to the UFC, Goulet was successful in his debut, earning a TKO victory over Jay Hieron. His second UFC fight, however, did not go his way. He was knocked out in 6.06 seconds by Duane Ludwig which is currently the quickest knockout in the history of the organization.

Goulet rebounded and came back to win a majority decision over The Ultimate Fighter 2 fan favourite, Luke Cummo, at Ultimate Fight Night 5. Goulet was then submitted due to strikes by Josh Koscheck at UFC Fight Night 6 and was submitted by Dustin Hazelett at UFC Fight Night 11.

Goulet then put together back to back wins in the UFC, first submitting Paul Georgieff in December 2007, and then winning via TKO over Kuniyoshi Hironaka and UFC 83.

Goulet fought at UFC: Fight For The Troops, taking on Mike Swick, where he lost via KO in the first round.

Most recently, Goulet took on Marcus Davis at UFC 113 in Montreal, and lost in the second round via TKO. He was released from the organization after his loss to Davis along with Paul Daley and Kimbo Slice.[4]


Goulet fought Canadian prospect, Matt MacGrath at Ringside MMA 8: Invasion in Quebec, Canada on August 7, 2010. Goulet defeated MacGrath at 1:39 of the first round by TKO (punches).[5]

Goulet faced Chris Clements on November 13, 2010 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada for the Ringside MMA Welterweight Championship. Goulet lost the fight via devastating knockout due to punches in the second round. After this fight, Goulet announced his retirement from MMA.[6]

Personal life[edit]

Goulet has a daughter.[7]
