Joe Pearson holds the record for the most wins in MMA by Triangle Choke and has been dubbed the “Triangular Strangler” for a good reason. Pearson holds a professional record of 42-17-1 and stands 5’9" and fights in the 135-pound division. Pearson trained for many years with Miletich Fighting Systems, and for the past nine years has been training with the legendary Spencer “The King” Fisher, with Team Evolution in Bettendorf, Iowa.

Fisher only had high praises for Pearson and says that he can see a tremendous amount of potential in this fighter. Fisher stated that Pearson is a wonderful fighter, teammate and provider for his family. Fisher says Pearson is known to have KO power in both hands, and with a few more fights and some good PR he will be on his way to the top.

Pearson would love to be able to train full-time, but somehow manages to keep up a rigorous training schedule while working and taking care of his of family. Pearson trains in BJJ, boxing and wrestling, and has world class stand-up. Pearson has been like a diamond in the rough, but now he is all polished up and ready to shine. He is ready to make his way to the top, and how could he not with his skills and such a great support and training system that he has in place.

Pearson could very well be the best kept secret in the 135-pound professional MMA realm. Take note all you 135-pounders: Joe Pearson is a man on the move and would love to show you how he earned his name as the “Triangular Strangler.”

Pearson has a fight coming up next Friday, August 26th, against Mike Linquist at the Waterfront Convention Center, 2021 State Street, Bettendorf, IA, 52722. The promoter is Monte Cox, and Pearson will be fighting at Extreme Challenge 191. If you have not had the pleasure of watching Pearson fight, and are anywhere in driving distance of Bettendorf, IA, go out and support Pearson and see if he can add yet another win by Triangle Choke. Pearson is looking to improve his standing to a four-fight winning streak. Pearson plans to have a choke and a smile after he annihilates and violates his next victim. 

Pearson, who has fought in major organizations such as Pride and WEC, looks forward to evolving his skills as an MMA competitor, and in the near future becoming the newest member of the 135-pound division in the UFC.
