Phil Ryan Cardella (born July 9, 1976) is an American mixed martial arts fighter. He currently fights as a lightweight in the World Extreme Cagefighting organization. All but one of Cardella’s triumphs have come by first-round submission. He is a Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Relson Gracie, as well as a 3rd Dan Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and a 2nd Dan Black Belt in Hapkido. He served in the United States Marine Corps, and continues to work with various branches of the U.S. Military to train them in jiu-jitsu. Phil was the first American fighter to represent the Relson Gracie Team in MMA competition. Relson Gracie has been in Phil's corner during many of his MMA matches.

Phil is the head instructor of Relson Gracie Austin, a martial arts school specializing in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

WEC careerEdit

While his record for the WEC reads 0-2, Cardella was a winner in the minds of several fans and critics after his fight against Danny Castillo ended a split decision. He made his WEC return at WEC 42 on August 9, 2009, losing to Ed Ratcliff by unanimous decision.
