Ronald Edward "Ron" Stallings, Jr.[3] (born February 25, 1983) is an American mixed martial artist who competes in the Middleweight division of Titan FC. A professional competitor since 2003, Stallings has also formerly competed for Strikeforce and the UFC.

Background[edit]

Stallings was born and raised in Durham, North Carolina and began training in martial arts at the age of seven. Stallings attended Joppatowne High School and later Morgan State University.[2]

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Stallings began training in 2000 and made his professional MMA debut in July 2003. He competed primarily in regional promotions where he compiled a record of 12-6 with one no contest before signing with the UFC.[2]

Strikeforce[edit]

With a record of 9-4 with one no contest, Stallings made his Strikeforce debut on July 22, 2011 at Strikeforce Challengers: Voelker vs. Bowling III against Adlan Amagov. Stallings lost via split decision.

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Stallings made his promotional debut as a short notice replacement against Uriah Hall on January 18, 2015 at UFC Fight Night 59, replacing an injured Louis Taylor.[4] Hall won via TKO in the first round after knocking Stallings down with a punch and following up with several more on the ground. When Stallings returned to his feet, referee Herb Dean stopped the fight to check a cut that had opened up on Stallings' face, and the ringside doctor declared the cut too severe for Stallings to continue.[5]

Stallings faced Justin Jones on April 4, 2015 at UFC Fight Night 63.[6] Stallings won via unanimous decision.[7]

Stallings faced Joe Riggs on September 5, 2015 at UFC 191.[8] Stallings lost the bout via disqualification after he landed an illegal upkick, which rendered Riggs unable to continue.[9] Subsequently, Stallings was released from the promotion.[10]

Titan Fighting Championship[edit]

Stallings made his promotional debut against Rashaun Spencer on August 5, 2016 at Titan FC 40. Stallings won via split decision.
