Damon Jacobs is from Thousand Oaks California. Whether it was coming from skateboarding, lifting weights, or punching people, ever since he was a little kid, he's been passionate about exercise. He found his true outlet through mixed martial arts when he was 12 years old. Ever since then, Damon has been training at Bas Rutten's Elite MMA Gym. His biggest challenge and fear, that he finally overcame, was back in 2015 when he decided to make his amateur MMA debut. Damon won, and got the award for fight of the night. Both training at the gym and stepping into the octagon have shown him what it takes to overcome fear and become a man.
