“Hello UFC middleweights. My name is Deron Winn. Happy to announce I just signed with the big leagues!”
Winn was last seen fighting on the mixed martial arts debut of Golden Boy Promotions. He earned a unanimous decision victory over Tom Lawlor. While it wasn’t the most dominant performance, many were still impressed with Winn for earning a one-sided victory over the experienced Lawlor in just his fifth pro bout. On top of that, Winn was competing at light heavyweight despite being 5’7.
Winn trains at American Kickboxing Academy and has developed a strong bond with two-division champion Daniel Cormier. Winn has a background in collegiate wrestling and placed fourth in the Olympic Trials for Team USA. He has a pro MMA record of 5-0.
Do you think the middleweight division is a good fit for Deron Winn?
