Larry Cureton

UFC vet who competed in 1995. One of the more decorated kickboxers in early UFC competition, Cureton entered cage at the age of 35 with a 7th degree black belt in Go-Kai Ju Karate training under Ron Jeter. He got his nickname "Thunderfoot" from the sound his kicks made hitting the heavy bag in the basement of the Jersey City Church where he often worked out. As a kickboxer he had a record of 28-7 and won championship titles under the WPKO, PKF, FFKA, and USKBA. He started his career in point Karate competition before moving on to boxing and kickboxing. While his success in kickboxing was reasonable, he was less than stellar as a boxer, going 2-5 between 1985 and 1998. Alongside and following his competitive fighting career Cureton has been an active firefighter with the Jersey City Fire Department. Today, he works as a personal trainer, bodyguard and motivational speaker.
