Chris Holdsworth is an American mixed martial artist who competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He's the winner of The Ultimate Fighter: Team Rousey vs. Team Tate.

"I started training to fight because I did some martial arts growing up but didn’t get too serious about it. My Taekwondo master moved back to Korea, so I stopped doing that when I was a youngster. I found martial arts again in 2004 when I was 16. A big part of me getting into martial arts was my dad, and my brother that passed. My dad was always into martial arts and kung fu, so I grew up around Bruce Lee movies and him showing me stuff on the heavy bag in the garage. My brother did American freestyle kickboxing and held a brown belt. I remember me trying on all his sparring gear in his bag and begging for him to take me to the gym. Unfortunately, he was gunned down when I was eight years old. At his memorial service, he was awarded his black belt by his Sensei. I remember after that day I told my parents I wanted to get my black belt one day like my brother.
I was also picked on a lot and bullied in school growing up. I didn’t really show people it bothered me, but deep down it did."


Holdsworth is expected to face Kyung-Ho Kang on May 24, 2014 at UFC 173
