Montreal, Quebec (Canada) Sunday December 2nd 2018 – After going on a spectacular run under the TKO banner which saw him go undefeated in four bouts and winning two championships along the way, current TKO lightweight and welterweight champion Jesse “The Bodysnatcher” Ronson is headed to the UFC.

Ronson had previously competed for Dana White’s organization in 2013 and 2014 when he lost three consecutive split decisions to fighters who would go on to be ranked in the top 15 lightweights in the world.  Ronson contemplated many avenues following his release from the biggest MMA promotion on the planet, but when TKO relaunched in 2016, he found his home and made it his mission to follow in the footsteps of his heroes.  He more than delivered on that promise, earning the praise and respect of fight fans around the world with his great skills, high fight IQ and charisma.

Ronson’s first fight will take place on Saturday, December 8 at UFC 231 in Toronto when he will face Carlos Diego Ferreira.

On behalf of all TKO personnel, fighters and fans, we would like to wish the Bodysnatcher all the best in this new phase of his career.
