Brad Imes Wiki Update Wiki

Standing 6’7” tall and weighing it at the heavyweight limit of 265 lbs., Brad Imes is the type of fighter who quickly garners attention. That became apparent when, after putting together a 3-0 pro record on the local California circuit, Imes was invited to participate in the second season of The Ultimate Fighter reality show. Imes performed well in the heavyweight tournament, ultimately losing to Rashad Evans by Split Decision in the live Finale. After back-to-back losses in the promotion, Imes was cut in 2007.


Since being cut from the UFC Imes has understandably drawn far less attention; however, he may be the only fighter in the history of the sport to have pulled off back-to-back submission wins by way of Gogoplata, which he accomplished during his post-UFC run in 2007. He is surely the only heavyweight to do so.
