Brad Kohler (born May 26, 1964) is an American mixed martial arts fighter. He competes in the Heavyweight division. He lost his last fight at Gladiator FC - Day 1 against Kim Jong Wang on June 26, 2004.
Kohler's most notable fight occurred at UFC 22 against Steve Judson, where he scored one of the more infamous knockouts in MMA history. 30 seconds into Round 1, Kohler feigned a takedown attempt, only to land an explosive right cross. Judson was KO'd instantly, and suffered a deep gash to his chin at the point of impact. Remaining unconscious and showing signs of having difficulty breathing, referees immediately signaled to the medical staff who administered oxygen treatment to Judson, who was taken out via stretcher to the local hospital.
Mr. Kohler graduated from Fairview Park High School in Fairview Park, OH. He is a regular among many fitness/training facilities in the Cleveland area and has a strong following due to his amiable and generous personality. He recently started a fitness gym called Nubody fitness which, after a sting of vandalism and bad luck, was abandoned.
