Darrell Smith –
Darrell “Bulldog” Smith, like so many others, comes from a wrestling background. After 9 years experience in wrestling, Darrell joined the Army National Guard because they would make him “get up and run in the morning”. Darrell began his MMA career in 2000 fighting in an event in Indiana. He has since fought all over the US, in many different events, including Bodog (Costa Rica), Hook’N’Shoot, AFC, Cage Rage, King of the Cage and many others.
“Bulldog”, a name given to him by a fight promoter who couldn’t remember his name, began training in Kickboxing in 2003. This is about the same time that he was introduced to the Indiana Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy and began training Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts with James Clingerman.
Darrell has over 40 MMA fights with wins of notable fighters such as UFC’s Brian Geraghty, IFL’s Bart Palazweski, and WEC’s Sherron “Rob Roy” Leggett.
Darrell has also created a DVD that features his Unorthodox fighting style, Bulldog’s Unorthodox MMA!.
