Chase Beebe (born March 29, 1985) is an American professional mixed martial artist (MMA) from Chicago, Illinois. He has recently fought for the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) organization, where he was the Bantamweight Champion. He lost that belt on February 13, 2008, to fellow Midwestern MMA fighter Miguel Torres. Beebe trains at Gilbert Grappling, alongside UFC lightweight contender Clay Guida.
Prior to MMA, Chase was a prolific wrestler. He was a four-time Illinois State Champion for Montini Catholic in Lombard, Illinois.
Ultimate Warrior Challenge No ShowEdit
Chase was scheduled to fight Mike Easton for the UWC Bantamweight title on February 21, 2009. However, he failed to show up at the official weigh-in the day before and was scratched from the card. Beebe allegedly sustained a knee injury that hampered his training and ability to reduce his weight to the contractually-set limit of 135 pounds. Chase was replaced by Justin Robbins.
Dream Featherweight Grand PrixEdit
Ultimate Warrior Challenge Bantamweight ChampionshipEdit
Chase got another shot at Mike Easton for the UWC 135 pound title. The bout took place on October 3rd, 2009 in Fairfax, Virginia. The fight was a grueling 5 rounder where Chase spent most of the fight on Mike Easton's back trying to sink in a rear naked choke. Most people, including the commentators, scored the fight 49-46 in favour of Chase Beebe but two of the judges didn't see it that way and handed Mike Easton a controversial Split Decision. The controversial decision was awarded Robbery of the Year by Sherdog for 2009. It has been announced that the Virgina Athletic Commission has reviewed the Easton match and has changed the fight to a no contest.
