Alan Michael Jouban (born November 25, 1981) is an American professional mixed martial artist currently fighting in the Welterweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. A professional competitor since 2010, Jouban has also formerly competed for Shark Fights, RFA and Tachi Palace Fights.
Born and raised in Lafayette, Louisiana, Jouban competed in soccer from a young age through high school until tearing his ACL. Jouban later began training in Muay Thai in 2005 at the age of 23, and was undefeated as an amateur, which led him into a career in mixed martial arts.
Mixed martial arts career
Jouban had his first amateur fight on March 26, 2010, and won via TKO just 14 seconds into the first round. He had his first professional fight on February 8, 2011 vs. Kyle Griffin, winning via 15 second knockout in the first round.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
Jouban made his UFC debut on August 16, 2014 against Seth Baczynski at UFC Fight Night 47. Jouban won by knockout in the first round. The back and forth action earned both participants Fight of the Night honors.
Jouban faced Matt Dwyer on July 15, 2015 at UFC Fight Night 71. Despite having a point taken away for an unintentional knee to his opponent's head, he won the back and forth fight by unanimous decision. Both participants were awarded Fight of the Night honors.
Jouban was expected to face Nordine Taleb on July 7, 2016 at UFC Fight Night 90. However, Taleb pulled out of the bout in early June citing an injury and was replaced by promotional newcomer Belal Muhammad. He won the fight via unanimous decision. Both participants were awarded Fight of the Night honors for their performance.
Jouban attended and graduated from Ovey Comeaux High School and then went to University of Louisiana at Lafayette in his hometown for a couple of semesters, but left before finishing a degree. Prior to signing with the UFC, Jouban was a professional model and also appeared in several television commercials. He is of French and Syrian descent.
