Mixed Martial Arts Career Edit
Ultimate Fighting Championship (1996–present) Edit
In 1996, 18-year-old mixed martial arts prospect Daniel Kent debuted in Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) against three-year veteran Juan Juarez (fictional fighter). He beat him via Knockout in 28 seconds of the first round. Since then, he garnered a reputation for defeating his opponents in the first round. He then signed up for a fight against fellow Middleweight fighter Anderson Silva. He went into the fight 15-0, but walked out 15-1 after Silva defeated him via Judge's Decision. After this fight, Daniel soon moved up to the Heavyweight Division.
Throughout the next 17 years, he won the UFC Heavyweight Championship twice. He reigned from June of 2003 to September of 2007 in his first reign, successfully defending the title 6 times, and from February of 2008 to May of 2012 in his second reign, successfully defending the title 7 times (multi-year reigns are common in UFC). In March 2013, he announced that he was going to venture out into the world of professional wrestling, while still balancing that with UFC. His record to this day is 37-4, losing only to Randy Couture (for the title), Frank Mir, Anderson Silva, and Cain Velasquez (for the title).

Personal Life Edit
Growing up, Daniel always had it rough; he was a frequent target of bullying since 2nd Grade. One day, however, things took a turn for the worst. As he walked home from school in 4th grade, he was attacked by bullies in an alleyway. The assault caused permanent amnesia, which made him unable to recall the first 6 years of his life. As a result, he took up mixed martial arts to defend himself. When the bullies saw him training one day, they never picked on him again. The sudden halting of the bullying did not stop Daniel. He trained and pushed himself every single day, hoping to make a career out of his martial arts skills. He participated in several local martial arts tournaments and fights, prevailing in every single one of them. Daniel has been trained by Inaugural UFC Hall of Famer and prominent modern MMA figure, Royce Gracie.
