UFC vet who competed in MMA from 1995 to 2009. Medina was one of several Gracie training partners and students to enter the UFC in its early years. He studied under Carlson Gracie, eventually earning his black belt. His early career was notable for the number of fights he took against top competition at the time. He ended up with very little to show for his hard work, going 5-9-1 between 1995 and 2006, but found a rhythm on the regional circuit closing out his career with a 6 fight win streak. He is currently the owner and head trainer of Todd Medina's Fight School in Costa Mesa, California, where he trains fighters in his own "freestyle" system. He also started his own MMA promotion, Strike Fighting Championships which closed its doors in 2010.
