KICKBOXING, CONDITIONING AND PRO CLASSES
Justin Buchholz has been honing the skills of Ultimate Fitness students with his phenominal teaching skills since 2009. Justin’s classes are difficult but his energy, enthusiasm and desire for those around him to succeed will carry even our newest members through his challenging classes.
Buchholz is a former ICON Sport Lightweight champion. He has also fought in EliteXC and he held an 8-1 record before signing with the UFC in 2007. He earned his first win in the UFC against three-to-one favorite, Corey Hill. After a few ups and downs in the UFC, Buchholz defeated Steve Clark by Submission (rear naked choke) in the first round. He then fought fellow UFC veteran Steve Lopez in May 2011 with SCC – Superior Cage Combat. Buchholz beat Lopez with a highlight reel finish, knocking Lopez our in the third with a front kick to the chin. Next, he beat Thiago Mellar by unanimous decision in August 2011 again with the SCC. Justin is currently the Showdown Lightweight Champion and his record is 14-7-0.
Aside from his MMA interests, Justin is a health and environmental fanatic and keeps those around him honest about the way they live. His knowledge of health, nutrition and fitness is quite vast and members learn more than just MMA techniques in his classes.
