Fighter Bio

Career

Patrick Jay "The Croatian Sensation" Miletich known as Pat Miletich (Mileti? in Croatian) (born March 9, 1968 in Davenport, Iowa) from Bettendorf, Iowa is a mixed martial artist (MMA) well known for his fights within the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He is the founder of Miletich Fighting Systems, which trains some of the most talented and popular fighters in MMA, such as former UFC Welterweight champion Matt Hughes, former UFC heavyweight champion Tim "The Maine-iac" Sylvia, former UFC lightweight champion Jens Pulver, and Robbie Lawler.

Pat was born in Davenport, Iowa, the youngest of 5 children (2 of his brothers are deceased). Miletich wrestled and played football at Bettendorf High School. He is believed to have begun wrestling at age six. Miletich said he wanted to be a world champion in something and wrestling was something he was good at. Although Pat originally planned to pursue football after graduating high school, he eventually chose to wrestle in junior college. Shortly thereafter, his mother became ill with heart problems, and Pat left school to care for her. Pat has stated in past interviews that he actually began fighting to help pay her bills.
