Roger Bowling (born May 8, 1982 in Neville, Ohio) is a American professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter. Currently, Bowling trains with Team Vision based in Ohio.

Mixed Martial Arts CareerEdit

Roger knew he wanted to be a professional athlete but was to small for football and basketball. He then turned to boxing and compiled a 9-0 record before quitting because it was doing too much damage to his head. Roger then found out about a mixed martial arts academy, close to where he was living. He decided to go out and give it a try. Roger ended up making the fight team of Team G Force, after going 2-1 in his amateur career Roger left the team and the academy, he then went to train with Team Vision.[1] In Bowling's first professional fight, he took on Chris Runge, the fight was held by MMA Bigshow, Bowling won the fight via knockout in the first round. He later took on undefeated Shamar Bailey and won the fight giving Bailey his first only loss to date. Strikeforce has signed Bailey and plan on signing Bowling to do a rematch.

On June 20, Bowling was set to fight former UFC welterweight War Machine.[2] However Roger broke his hand a couple weeks before the event and was not cleared to fight. The two agreed to fight later in the year. Before rescheduling, Roger defeated Devon Plaisance.[3][4] Bowling was set to fight War Machine in the main event of XFC 9 in Tampa, Florida on September 5, however, Bowling was again forced to withdraw due to injury.
