Jonathan Martinez Record: A Look At The UFC Fighter’s Fighting History

Jonathan Martinez Record


UFC bantamweight Jonathan Martinez has not lost a bout in his last six UFC appearances. He looks to win a 7th straight fight and further improve his record at UFC 301.

Known as the Dragon, Martinez will get the opportunity of a lifetime when he faces Hall of Famer and Featherweight GOAT Jose Aldo in the co-main event of UFC 301 on 14 May  2024, at the Farmassi Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Martinez is a former two-division champion at the XFL promotion where he won both the flyweight and bantamweight championships. The Dragon opened his career with 7 consecutive victories and suffered his first career loss to future UFC fighter Matt Schnell via disqualification after he landed an illegal knee during their bout at Legacy FC 49.

He fought for a couple more regional promotions before taking an impressive 9-1 MMA record to the UFC. However, Martinez began his Octagon career on a rough note. He went just 4-3 in his first 7 bouts, including a loss at the hands of Andre Soukhamthath in his first UFC appearance. 

Since his second-round knockout loss against Davey Grant at UFC Fight Night 187 on 13 March 2021, The Dragon has racked up six straight victories including wins over the likes of TUF Latin America bantamweight Tournament winner Alejandro Perez, Cub Swanson, and Omar Nurmagomedov.

Overall, Jonathan Martinez owns an MMA record of 19-4 with 9 knockouts and two submission victories. Martinez has been knocked out once and disqualified one time. His two other losses were via decision. Meanwhile, Jose Aldo is 37 years old and is coming off a short-lived retirement. He has a record of 31-8 with 17 knockouts and one submission victory. Four of Aldo’s losses were by knockout and one by submission.
