Daniel Straus entered mixed martial arts in 2009, but in less than three years time has already compiled more than 20 fights in his pro career. An imposing wrestler, Straus' size and frenetic pace got him to the Season 4 featherweight tournament finals before he ultimately lost a decision to Patricio Pitbull.
The Ohio-native made an impressive return in Season 6, handing Jeremy Spoon his first pro loss in the quarterfinals. The superiorly conditioned Straus is geared up for a second tournament run.
Record: 18 - 4 - 0 (3 KOs)
