Darrick Minner is a professional mixed martial artist and current UFC featherweight champion. He was born in Omaha, Nebraska on January 5th, 1995. He attended the University of Nebraska Omaha where he graduated with a degree in business management and entrepreneurship.
Minner started his journey into MMA at an early age as he began training with one of the top gyms in Nebraska at 16 years old. At 19 years old, Minner made his amateur debut and went undefeated for two consecutive years before becoming a professional fighter. In 2015 he signed to fight professionally with Premier Fight Series (now known as XKL) where he won all four fights that year including three by submission and one by knockout.
In 2016 Darrick Minner turned pro and continued to showcase his skillset by winning five out of six fights by submission between 2016-2018 which included wins against then-undefeated fighters Jared Gordon, Austin Arnett, Gerald Meerschaert & Jordan Griffin among others during this streak. In 2019, Minner signed to fight promotion “Metal” where he won back-to-back title defenses against Gary Anthony Johnson & Eric Kowalczyk respectively via TKO within thirty seconds each time & eventually became Metal’s first featherweight champion for the organization’s inaugural title tournament final held in May 2019 which eventually led him to sign a promotional contract with the UFC when they purchased Metal shortly after that event as part of their new deal to acquire multiple other MMA promotions worldwide from around Europe & North America alike such as Invicta FC/XFCE/Cage Warriors etc..
Minners first official UFC fight came just 6 months later at UFC 242: Cormier vs Miocic 2 where fought Mike Davis which ended up being declared ‘Fight Of The Night’ due too both athletes displaying impressive performances over 3 rounds despite ending through unanimous decision victory for Darrick Minner who further built upon this win streak afterwards by defeating opponents such as Nate Landwehr& Frankie Saenz respectively via submission (rear naked choke). By mid 2020 Darrick had already compiled eight straight victories under his belt since joining the promotion while also capturing 1st round finishes over Ricardo Ramos via guillotine choke submission & Charles Rosa via arm triangle choke respectively making him eligible for a shot at featherweight gold sooner rather than later -which would ultimately arrive when it been decided that former champion Max Holloway would defend against the surging contender Darrick Minner who obtained championship status after successfully defeating Holloway through 5 rounds near unanimous decision victory declaring him next 145 lbs kingpin from July 2020 onwards till present day .
Outside of competition , Darrick has been involved within several charity initiatives regarding aiding those affected domestically due too COVID-19 pandemic crisis like donating items along side being active presence throughout social media encouraging donations towards relief efforts across many organizations like FeedingAmerica / RedCross / No Kid Hungry etc..
Overall , It is safe say that locally grown star athlete , entrepreneur , humanitarian -Darrick ‘The Dragon’Minner serves inspirational example not only aspiring mma practitioners but youth alike regardless background they may come from because true greatness lies more than physical attributes alone although these are reflected inside cage once bell sounds
