He made his professional debut in early 2012 and in his first year, he would go undefeated in five fights while also picking up the Warfare MMA flyweight title. He would pick up two additional wins in 2013, both by T/KO.
It was announced in August 2013 that Justin was signed by the UFC. He was initially listed as facing Dustin Ortiz at UFC Fight Night 27 in a late addition to the card, but less than a day later, it was announced that the fight had been scratched for unknown reasons. He was later given a bout with TUF: The Smashes cast member, Richie Vaculik, at UFC Fight Night 33 instead. Scoggins would impress many when he was able to pick up another TKO victory in the first round to pick up his first UFC win. He fought Will Campuzano at UFC 171 and was able to pick up a unanimous decision to retain his perfect record.
