Jeff Monson Wiki Update Wiki

Despite an up-and-down pro record, Jeff Monson is one of the most effective submission fighters in the heavyweight division, having won multiple world championships in submission grappling, including the 2005 ADCC 99+kg division.


Monson made his professional MMA debut in 1998, and during runs in the UFC, Pride FC, Dream, and many other organizations, Monson has defeated the likes of Ricco Rodriguez, Mark Kerr, Roy Nelson, and Segei Kharitonov. In his shot at the UFC Heavyweight title against Tim Sylvia, Monson was unable to seize the crown and did not return to the promotion.


Outside of his fighting career, Monson is a self-professed anarchist. He has expressed his anti-government views on multiple occasions and bears several anarchistic symbols tattooed on his body. On July 29, 2009, Monson pleaded guilty to malicious mischief and entered an Alford plea for graffiti after vandalizing the Washington State Capitol building with an anarchy symbol, a peace symbol, and the words “no poverty” and “no war.” After photos of Monson in the act were published in ESPN The Magazine, he was sentenced to 90 days of work release and ordered to pay $21,894 in restitution. Jeff Monson continues to fight.
