Biography

Eastman is a full time corrections officer. Marvin "The Beastman" Eastman made his MMA debut with King of the Cage in June 2000. He won three straight, including his debut over future UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, before losing to Vernon White.

Following his loss to White, Eastman fought future UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin at the World Fighting Alliance's first event, where he was submitted by Franklin via armbar. Eastman rebounded in the next two WFA events with wins over Alex Stiebling and Tom Sauer.

Eastman made his UFC debut at UFC 43 against future UFC Light Heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort, Belfort delivered a knee to Eastman's forehead that dropped him resulting in his face being torn open while receiving quite possibly the largest cut in recorded mixed martial art history, thus losing via TKO due to strikes in just 1 minute 7 seconds of the very first round. He then returned to KOTC to avenge his loss to Vernon White. Following the rematch with White, Eastman was given another shot in the UFC against submission specialist Travis Lutter, Lutter caught Eastman with an overhand right knocking The Beastman out cold 43 seconds into the second round.

Shortly after his second UFC loss, Eastman lost a split decision to Jason Lambert at KOTC's Mortal Sin event. He then went 6-1 in smaller shows, including Canada'smarker TKO organization.

In 2006, Eastman became the EFC Light Heavyweight Champion with a majority decision win over UFC and PRIDE veteran Travis Wiuff. On July 22, 2006, the WFA reemerged with King of Streets featuring Quinton Jackson, Matt Lindland, Bas Rutten, and Lyoto Machida, among others. Eastman fought to a draw against Jorge Oliviera.

Eastman made his third appearance in the UFC at UFC 67, losing a hard fought rematch with Quinton Jackson by Knockout in the second round. Eastman won a unanimous decision over Rob Kimmons at IFO: Eastman vs. Kimmons, claiming the IFO's middleweight title. He returned to the Ultimate Fighting Championship at UFC 81 on February 2, 2008, defeating "Dangerous" Terry Martin in a dominant unanimous decision.

At The Ultimate Fighter 7 Finale, Eastman was defeated by knockout artist Drew McFedries in the first round via knockout. In October 2008 Marvin Eastman lost to PRIDE and Spirit MC veteran Denis Kang by knockout 48 seconds into the opening round. Eastman was set to fight PRIDE veteran Ricardo Arona in late December but suffered a torn ACL and a minor fractured bone during training. Eastman defeated Aaron Lofton at MFC 21, winning by technical knockout. Eastman lost to Ricardo Arona by unanimous decision in the long awaited fight at Bitetti Combat.

A month after his loss to Arona, Marvin Eastman fought up and coming Canadian prospect Ryan Jimmo at MFC 22 on October 2nd. Eastman dropped and almost finished Jimmo in the first round with a straight right hand and hammer fist afterward but Jimmo weathered the storm and was able to survive and Eastman won a very dominant first round. In the second round Jimmo was able to take "The Beastman" down and cut Marvin with elbows from mount Marvin was eventually able to get to his feet with 32 seconds remaining but Jimmo was able to outstrike Marvin thus winning the second round convincingly.

The third and final round began and both fighters immediately started to slug it out it was a very close round at the end both fighters hugged and congratulated each other on a great fight. Ryan Jimmo Defeated Marvin Eastman by split decision, it was controversial as many people thought Marvin Eastman won the fight with this loss Marvin has lost five out of his last eight bouts.
