Kevin Jackson Wiki

Kevin Jackson is one of the most decorated amateur wrestlers to ever compete in Mixed Martial Arts.  A four time NCAA division I all-american, Jackson went on to win three national titles, one world championship, and was an Olympic gold medalist in 1992.  Jackson began fighting as a professional MMA fighter in 1997 and rapidly became one of the most highly regarded fighters in the sport at the time.  After just 3 fights, Jackson fought Frank Shamrock for the inaugural UFC light heavyweight title(then known as the middleweight title) and was submitted via armbar in just 16 seconds.  Following a disputed technical submission loss to Jerry Bohlander, Jackson fought once more and retired.  Jackson was the US National freestyle wrestling coach for 8 years(2001-08) and has been the head wrestling coach at Iowa State University since 2009.  He is a member of both the United States National Wrestling Hall of Fame and the FILA International Wrestling Hall of Fame.
