Mike Guymon

– 12-5-1 MMA/ 1-3 UFC Record

– 2 Fight Losing Streak

– Notable Wins: Yoshiyuki Yoshida, Quinn Mulhern, Kyacey Uscola

——————————————————————————–

In a backstage video posted on UFC.com, Mike “The Joker” Guymon was seen in an emotional state following his submission loss to DeMarques Johnson at UFC Fight Night 23. After congratulating Johnson on his victory, Guymon made remarks hinting at his retirement. He later confirmed his decision in an interview with MMA Junkie.

Guymon is a 12-year veteran of mixed martial arts and former King of the Cage welterweight champion. He signed with the UFC in late 2009, but lost to the 170-pound prodigy, Rory MacDonald in his debut. Guymon earned his only win in the UFC in May of 2010, when he beat Yoshiyuki Yoshida by unanimous decision.

Even though Guymon doesn’t plan on competing anymore, he still plans on training and teaching his students at his own gym, Joker’s MMA Academy in California.
