Mixed Martial ArtsEdit
As a former UFC fighter, Radach spent the last couple of years away from MMA after suffering a severely broken jaw in a fight against Chris Leben. He is well-known in the fight world as a promising young prospect whose career was halted by that injury. Radach recovered from his injury and began fighting at middleweight (185 pounds) in the IFL for the Los Angeles Anacondas.
Most recently, Radach signed a three fight deal with EliteXC in 2008 and won his first bout against top-ranked middleweight Murilo Rua at EliteXC: Heat on October 4, 2008. Radach finished the fight via TKO in the 2nd round.
After EliteXCs demise, Radach then moved on to Strikeforce where he lost by knockout to Scott Smith.
Radach has suffered many injuries throughout his career, including a broken jaw, a herniated disc and a broken collarbone, amongst others. Radach would suffer another problem in February 2010 when he caught a staph infection after surgery on a torn pectoral muscle that was suffered in training.
He was recently named the corporate director of instructor's training for LA Boxing. His responsibilities primarily involve training and preparing potential LA Boxing instructors for lessons of various experience levels.
