Formerly an open-side flanker for local rugby team Hove RFC, Hathaway decided to make the transitition to mixed martial arts after watching the Ultimate Fighting championship (UFC) on television. He made his professional MMA debut on the 25th June 2006 defeating his opponent via rear naked choke in the first round.
Mixed Martial Arts Career
After signing a four fight deal, Hathaway was scheduled to fight undefeated Tom Egan at UFC 93: Franklin vs. Henderson. He made an impressive UFC debut, scoring a dominant TKO win over Egan via elbows, expanding his record to a perfect 10-0-0.
It was announced on February 2, 2010 that Hathaway would return at UFC 114: Rampage vs. Evans to face off against Diego Sanchez, who was returning to the Welterweight division after going 2-1 in the lightweight division, only losing to B.J. Penn due to doctor stoppage in a Lightweight title fight. The 6-foot-1 Brit made his U.S. debut and used his long reach, crisp and powerful striking, a surprisingly effective sprawl, and dominant ground game to grind out a lopsided unanimous-decision win over The Ultimate Fighter winner.
