Ronald Edward "Ron" Stallings, Jr. (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.
Mixed martial arts career
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.
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
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. 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.
Stallings faced Joe Riggs on September 5, 2015 at UFC 191. Stallings lost the bout via disqualification after he landed an illegal upkick, which rendered Riggs unable to continue. Subsequently, Stallings was released from the promotion.
Titan Fighting Championship
Stallings made his promotional debut against Rashaun Spencer on August 5, 2016 at Titan FC 40. Stallings won via split decision.
