Family Physician and Professional Mixed Martial Artist, Dr. Seth Kleinbeck.
Okay, so you're frustrated with your medical practice. You need a hobby to blow off some steam and maybe make a few bucks on the side. You're considering moonlighting in another career just to see how it would go. Not sure what you want to do exactly but open to ideas?
How about cage fighting?
Interestingly, as a native Arkansan and a student of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ), I heard about Dr. Kleinbeck a few years ago when I visited a Little Rock BJJ school and heard stories about a local doctor who "punched as hard as anyone we've ever seen."
From what I can tell, Dr. Kleinbeck fought in a variety of smaller shows before being signed by the now defunct EliteXC to a six fight professional contract. According to fight reports on mixed martial arts (MMA) websites, Dr. Kleinbeck has an 8-4 professional record and last fought in late 2007.
No word as to whether the good doctor has retired from fighting or just looking for another venue. If we hear anything, we'll let you know.
One thing's for sure: the guy's no joke. Here's a highlight video of some of his fights.
