MMA’s True Ironman: Travis Fulton, 245 Career Wins and Counting

By Darren Barcomb

I recently wrote an article about Dan “The Beast” Severn as he approaches the magical number 100 for career MMA victories. As astounding as that accomplishment will be, would you believe that there is an active professional fighter who has 245 career wins? Well, believe it. The most durable fighter that you have probably never heard of is Travis “The Ironman” Fulton.

Over the past 15 years, the 33-year-old brawler has compiled a career record of 245-47-10. That’s right, 245 career wins. Although much of his competition has been for regional promotions against less than stellar competition, it still presents an outstanding example of pure determination and grit.

Somehow, between training and fighting in MMA bouts, Fulton has found the time to mix it up in the professional boxing ring. Always game for a fight, he has slugged his way to a record of 14-25 with 14 KO’s. While not a star-spangled track record, it’s not bad for his second best sport.

Fulton’s true calling is MMA, and he’s good at it. All of those 245 wins didn’t come against “cream-puff” fighters either. Over the years he has competed in the UFC, WEC, and IFL. The stocky 6′ 240 pound fighter may not resemble a body builder, but I’m sure he could knock one out. He has beaten the likes of Heath Herring, Wes Sims, Joe Riggs and Wesley Correira. He battled to a draw with UFC Hall of Famer Dan Severn and legendary Jeremy Horn (twice).
