Justin Buchholz is a mixed martial arts fighter, perhaps best known for his flamboyant bright orange dyed hair. Buchholz graduated from Lathrop High School in 2002, where he competed in wrestling. He competes in the Lightweight division.

Mixed martial arts careerEdit

Buchholz is a former ICON Sport Lightweight champion. He also fought in EliteXC before signing with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

He lost his first fight in the UFC at UFC Fight Night 12 against Matt Wiman on January 23, 2008. Buchholz earned his first victory at UFC 86 against TUF 5 contestant and three-to-one favorite, Corey Hill.

Buchholz was defeated by Terry Etim via D'Arce choke at UFC 99. Buchholz and Etim traded heavy kicks and punches for the first few minutes in the bout before Buchholz landed a hard right hand which broke Etim’s nose. Buchholz pounced, but Etim was able to survive the round. Etim went back to his measured gameplan in round two, landing with some hard leg kicks, before hurting Buchholz with multiple knees from the clinch. A scramble ensued before the fight went to the mat and from there Etim was able to lock in the D'Arce choke to finish the fight.

In his next fight, Buchholz faced Jeremy Stephens, where he lost due to a cut in the first round.

Buchholz was defeated by Mac Danzig on February 6, 2010 at UFC 109. He was subsequently released from the UFC.
