 MMA Career
Wetherspoon has fought almost exclusively for King of the Cage. In his fourth professional fight, he defeated Thomas Kenney to win the vacant KOTC Welterweight Championship. Wetherspoon went on to defend his title three times successfully, including over the likes of WEC veteran Dave Terrel and UFC veteran LaVerne Clark, before making an appearance on at Strikeforce-EliteXC: Shamrock vs. Baroni, where he faced former WEC Welterweight Champion Mike Pyle. He was defeated by Pyle by Decision (Unanimous), and returned to KOTC to defend his title against John Mahlow, which he did successfully, by TKO in the third round.
In his next bout, Wetherspoon faced off against Anthony Lapsley, once again to defend his KOTC Welterweight Championship. In an amazing turn of events, both fighters uncorked a right hook at the same time, knocking each other out simultaneously. The bout was considered a No Contest, so Wetherspoon kept the title. A re-match was scheduled three months later, and, in August 2008, the two faced off once again. During this outing Lapsley caught Wetherspoon in a Scarf Hold Armlock early in the first round, ending Wetherspoon's reign as KOTC Welterweight Champion.
Wetherspoon would not fight again for over two and one-half years, but returned to action in February 2011. Wetherspoon beat Nick Reale by unanimous decision at MEZ Sports: Pandemonium 4.
