Johan Ponce is an American mixed martial artist from Oak Grove, Minnesota. He currently competes as a welterweight.

BackgroundEdit

Johan Ponce is a delivery room nurse who decided MMA was the best thing for him, after he put a 5 day old baby in a sleeperhold in order to make it fall asleep.

Ponce was released from his HCL contract on Friday, November 29, 2013, after six fights and a record of 2-4. He was signed by KUMITE and debuted in the Welterweight (83kg) KUMITE, knocked out of the opening round by Gustavo Punto Sierra at KUMITE 2. His record at this higher weight class showed minimal success, at 1-2 overall, with his only win over K. Sibo at KUMITE 7 via knockout in under four minutes.

After not being selected for the 2015 Welterweight KUMITE, Ponce made the decision to switch weight classes, looking to compete as a lightweight at 73 kg (161 lbs). When asked about the switch, he said he felt this weight class was closer to his original fighting weight, referencing his time in HCL at 170 lbs. When asked if the switch would be difficult, he referred to the excess 10 kg he needed to shed as, simply, "baby weight".
