Rob Broughton Profile

By the time Broughton’s career was 3 fights old in 2004, he already had a win, a loss, and a draw. After his first win in his third fight, Broughton agreed to fight 6 days later, and he would win that fight as well in the first round by TKO. The heavyweight began traveling all over England and taking fights whenever he could. By the time the end of 2006 rolled around, Broughton was 7-2-1, and had won the Cage Rage Heavyweight Title. In 2007, and 2008, Broughton only fought 3 times, and he dropped two of them losing his Cage Rage title.

In April of 2009, Broughton began fighting with the M-1 organization, where he would fight 4 times in the year, and he went on to win 3 of them. In 2010, Broughton signed to fight in a heavyweight tournament that would have him fighting 3 times in one night, and the idea was to find the best heavyweight in England. After submitting Neil Wain, Broughton then knocked out grizzled veteran James Thompson, and he would go on to win the tournament by decision over Oli Thompson.

Broughton was then invited to face Vinicius Queiroz at UFC 120. In a spirited fight, Broughton went on to win in the third round by rear naked choke, and earning him his first UFC win. The result was left the same, but it was later revealed that Queiroz had tested positive for steroids in the post fight drug screen. Broughton is expected to face Travis Browne at UFC 135 in Denver, Colorado.
