Mixed martial arts career[edit]

After winning six straight fights since the loss to Riggs, Kimmons took his second loss this time to Ryan Jensen.

Kimmons fought for the World Series of Rumble Welterweight title in 2006 and defeated Steve Schneider to become champion. He then fought in Shooto's American Welterweight Grand Prix where he defeated all competition with first round knockouts or submissions to win the 16 man tournament.

In July 2007, Kimmons faced UFC veteran, Marvin Eastman for the International Fighting Organization's middleweight title. Kimmons lost the fight by decision. Kimmons then dropped down to the welterweight division two months later in order to face Tristan Yunker for the IFO's welterweight title. Kimmons won the title in the first round.
