Daniel Barrera is an American professional mixed martial artist. Born and raised on a farm in Rupert, Idaho, Daniel excelled as a wrestler at Minico High School, making it to the state championships in 1999. Upon graduating, Barrera enlisted in the United States Air Force, taking up boxing and compiled a 15-3-0 record including a hard-fought loss to 2004 Olympic gold medalist Andre Ward. After being transferred to Fort Knox in Kentucky, the lack of a boxing gym in the area turned Barrera to hand-to-hand combat training with other soldiers, and an MMA career was born. Upon his honorable discharge in 2005 after a tour in Pakistan, he moved back to Idaho with his wife and began training while working for the Rupert Fire Department. He was a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter: Team Hughes vs. Team Serra, fighting on Team Hughes. He is currently pursuing his Master's degree in Fire Science while continuing to train with World Champion BJ Penn in Hilo, HI. Transferring his job and family to HI has had immediate effects on his all-around MMA arsenal, after winning the Triple Crown Grappling Championships in Ohau he continues to work with World Class BJJ instructors on a continuing basis.

Dan was eliminated in the first round of The Ultimate Fighter 6 by Ben Saunders via split decision, and then lost to Ben again during the finale of the season on December 8, 2007 via unanimous decision in his first UFC fight.
