Brett “Big Dog” Martin
26 | 6’0” | Hesperia, Michigan, US | 10-1 | 4 Finishes | 2 KO/TKOs, 2 Submissions (D’Arce, Kimura) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 51-32-2 | Best Win – Josh Parisian (7-2)
Brett Martin carries a lot more weight than most fighters but that doesn’t stop him from being a solid prospect. Two of his last three wins, which came against Daniel James and Renan Ferreira, were won via DQ but nonetheless, those go down as wins and that’s two really good wins. He last competed in May, picking up a unanimous decision at XFC 44. Along with those names, he’s also beat current UFC fighter Josh Parisian. Based on his level of competition alone he deserves a shot in the UFC.
Martin is first and foremost a wrestler and a very strong guy, being able to lift opponents and slam them to the mat. Once on top, he is staying there as he knows how to use his weight but doesn’t just lay and pray. Martin has very good ground-and-pound, and on the feet, he does have knockout power despite relying more on his wrestling.
