Mixed martial arts career

North American Allied Fight Series

Julian Lane joined the NAAFS for his second amateur fight. On May 23, 2009 in Akron, Ohio at NAAFS Midwest Combat Challenge 8. It took him 1:04 to submit Cliff Jefferson via rear naked choke.[1]

NAAFS Caged Vengeance 5 took place July 10, 2009 in Columbus, Ohio. Lane defeated Greg George via unanimous decision.[1]

On October 24, 2009, Lane faced Wally MacDonald at NAAFS North Coast Showdown 4 in Toledo, Ohio and was defeated with a submission (armbar) 1:07 into the first round.[1]

After getting a win outside the NAAFS, he returned on November 25, 2009 at NAAFS Caged Fury 8 in East Liverpool, Ohio. Lane was defeated by Jeb Banovsky with a submission (guillotine choke) at 0:34 of the second round.[1]

NAAFS Midwest Combat Challenge 11 took place on May 8, 2010 in Akron, Ohio. Lane defeated Harold Stewart at 3:00 of round 1 via TKO (referee stoppage) when his opponent did not answer the bell for the next round.[1]


Lane made his Bellator debut on April 20, 2012 at the IX center in Cleveland, Ohio on the Bellator 66: Alvarez vs Aoki II card. It only took him 2:49 in the first round to lock in a guillotine choke and submit Joe Hieland.[2]

The Ultimate Fighter

Lane was selected as a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter: Team Carwin vs. Team Nelson. He beat Diego Bautista in the preliminary round via unanimous decision, and was later selected by head coach Roy Nelson.[3]

Let Me Bang, Bro

In an embarrassing, drunken rampage, Lane was featured on episode 8 of The Ultimate Fighter: Team Carwin vs. Team Nelson in a segment that saw him continually plead "Let me bang, bro," to fellow fighter Michael Hill. During the 45 seconds or so that he continued to repeat the now sensational slogan, Lane's demeanor became markedly more desperate as he began to cry while continuing his demands. The segment was so memorable that it immediately sparked much attention on the internet, including a meme. [4]
