Deron Winn Signs With UFC

After an impressive win at Golden Boy MMA I, Deron Winn has jumped ship and signed with the UFC.

An All-American wrestler who trains with UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier, took to Twitter on Thursday announcing he was the newest UFC middleweight.


Winn had a star making performance against UFC veteran and current MLW wrestler, Tom Lawlor in the co main event of the Liddell-Ortiz card in November, taking a unanimous decision against the popular fighter.

Winn also had made an appearance in Bellator, taking a first round TKO win over Ahmed White at Bellator 199.

“A guy like me, with my wrestling credentials, at first I was just getting opponents off ‘Oh maybe he just only knows how to wrestle and he can’t fight yet,’” said Winn told MMA Fighting earlier this year.

“But I’m 4-0 with four first-round finishes. So, now it’s even harder for me to get fights. The last guy I fought, I knocked out on the feet. Now they’re scared of multiple things.”
