Fighter Bio


"The Natural" John Alessio was born in Vancouver B.C. Canada. He was raised there until he was 19 years old and made the decision to go and pursue his goal of being a world-class fighter. John left his country with nothing more than two suitcases and big dreams. John was always an incredible athlete but really found his niche as a fighter. In his first fight he knocked out his opponent in vicious fashion. John wasted no time and moved to sunny California where he began training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at The Shark Tank.

John flourished as a professional fighter and amassed a 7-3 record in his first ten fights. Alongside fighting John also conducted other hobbies, which included BMX trick biking. Given his nickname "The Natural" for his ability to quickly learn and master trades. At the same time John was a becoming a seasoned fighter, he also managed to win the Nationals in trick biking two years in a row. John got his big break after wining a four-man tournament in Hawaii, which earned him a ticket into The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Only nineteen years of age and still learning John did not turn down the opportunity. He was matched up with legendary Pat Miletich who had a wealth of experience. John put up a great fight but would wind up getting caught in a submission late in the second round.

John was unsuccessful in UFC debut but would move forward and continue fighting across the country. He has fought in just about every major organization and has established himself as a world-class welterweight. He has stepped up against the elite, which include Doerksen, Brennan, Black, Jhun, and Sanchez. Alessio is dedicating all his efforts on being a full time fighter and hopes to some day become the UFC Welterweight Champion!
