Steve Thomas Steinbeiss[1] (born May 5, 1981) is an American mixed martial artist who recently fought in the middleweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Steinbess was part of the transfer of light heavyweight and middleweight fighters in the WEC to the UFC.

He was supposed to make his debut at UFC Fight Night 18 against Ryan Jensen, but the fight was pulled from the card. It was then rescheduled for UFC Fight Night: Diaz vs. Guillard. Steinbess lost the fight after Jensen applied a guillotine choke and the referee prematurely stopped the fight thinking Steve was out. Steinbess was instead giving the ref the thumbs up, the referee proclaimed that he thought Steinbess went limp.

Steinbess was expected to face Nick Catone on January 11, 2010 at UFC Fight Night 20, but was pulled from the card before the event due to injury.[2]

Steinbess then faced Rob Kimmons on August 1, 2010 at UFC on Versus 2.[3] Steinbess lost by unanimous decision to Kimmons and was released from the UFC.
