Roger Bowling, born May 8, 1982, Neville, Ohio, USA, is an American mixed martial artist fighting for ‘Strikeforce’ in the Welterweight division.
One of Bowling’s childhood idols was former heavyweight boxing champion “Iron” Mike Tyson. And it shows. Much like Tyson, Bowling is an absolute dynamo inside the cage.
Bowling’s combination of fast hands, power and consistent aggressiveness inside the cage make it tough for competitors to stand up with him.
Nothing short of a wrecking machine, Bowling has been rolling since making his MMA debut in June 2007. The five-foot-nine registered six consecutive first-round victories at the outset of his career before he had to settle for a 0:14, second-round TKO (punches) over Jerrod Appenzeller.
As of 2012, Bowling has an MMA record of 11 wins; 7 by knockouts; 2 submissions; and only 3 losses.
