BIOGRAPHY

Daniel Rodriguez is an American mixed martial artist currently competing in the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s (UFC) welterweight division. He was born and raised in San Jose, California on August 3, 1990. At a young age he realized his natural talent for fighting due to his various street fights influenced by his father’s background as a former professional boxer. After seeing first hand the success of some of UFC’s biggest stars such as Anderson Silva and BJ Penn, Daniel decided to pursue MMA seriously.

In 2011 he moved to Los Angeles where he began training with legendary coach John Wood and developed strong striking techniques that have become widely known today as “A-Train Striking”. His amateur career saw him win two consecutive titles before turning professional in 2013 at Bellator 90 against Allann Perez which resulted in a unanimous decision victory for Daniel. This marked the start of his impressive professional career that has seen him rise through the ranks and gain recognition from many within the sport including head coach Dan Henderson who praised him during an interview stating: “He could be one of those fighters who really rises up.”

His successful string of performances earned Daniel a contract with UFC where he made his debut against Tim Means at UFC Fight Night 73, scoring a split decision victory over Means after three rounds of action making it five wins out six for Rodriguez since joining the promotion so far. He has since gone on to earn another win over Craig White at UFC Fight Night 138 earning himself Performance Of The Night honors along with four other victories throughout 2019 alone showing just how talented and determined this fighter is when inside the octagon cage or preparing for battle outside it by staying disciplined off all potential distractions throughout fight camps leading up to big events like these .

As one can see, Daniel Rodriguez is no stranger when it comes down to succeeding inside combat sports octagons; With eight wins out nine total fights under his belt already , being named Performance Of The Night twice already , rising through multiple divisions within organizations quickly , plus having achieved recognition from industry veterans like Dan Henderson ; It seems there will not be anyone stopping this athlete anytime soon !
