Carlos Newton (born August 17, 1976) is an Anguillian-born Canadian retired mixed martial artist and one of the original MMA pioneers. He is a former UFC Welterweight Champion and Pride FC Japan MMA Legend. Known as “The Ronin”, he competed worldwide in the biggest MMA organizations including UFC, Pride FC, IFL, K-1, Shooto and most recently W-1. He is a 3rd Degree Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt alongside his coach Terry Riggs under Renzo Gracie, at Warrior MMA in Newmarket, Ontario. Newton has always been considered a fan favourite and a “Submission Master” and has dubbed his personal fighting style — an amalgam of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, judo, wrestling and boxing — as “Dragon Ball Jiu-Jitsu” in tribute to Dragon Ball, a Japanese manga series. As a testament to his worldwide popularity, Newton is one of only a few MMA athletes to ever be allowed to compete in the UFC and Pride FC at the same time. He currently manages his own gym in Pickering, Ontario, Newton MMA.
