The couple got engaged back in 2012 as per reports but things shortly fell apart for the two and both of them decided to call it quits. Harrison announced her second relationship seven years later in 2019 when she let the world know she was dating Anthony Martin.
Unfortunately, there has been no information regarding the couple’s current status. They have not been open about their relationship since then. It is unknown whether the couple wants to keep their relationship private or the two have broken up.
Is Anthony Martin Kayla Harrison husband? Who is he?
Martin as mentioned earlier is an American professional mixed martial artist who is considered by many as a true veteran in the UFC. Born on December 11th 1989, he trained with the American Top Team, Florida where he met Harrison and even started dating her.
The 31-year-old made his UFC debut back in 2014, which resulted in a loss. He was in the pro-MMA world for just 2 years before signing with the biggest MMA promotion in the world i.e. UFC.
Prior to joining UFC, Martin had only eight pro mixed martial arts bouts under his belt. He was undefeated in all eight of his fights and fought under various promotions like Dakota FC, Cage Fighting Extreme, etc.
In 2014 itself he went on to have two more fights out of which he only managed to win one. His debut year in the UFC did not go as expected as he started with a 1-2 record. In his six years at the UFC Martin had 15 fights and ended his UFC career with a record of 9 wins and 6 losses in the company.
Martin entered the UFC with an undefeated record, however, he was not able to build on it. During his six years with the UFC he never even got a title shot because of his inconsistent performances. Martin fought in lightweight and welterweight category in the UFC.
Martin’s last fight in the UFC came in June last year (2020) when he fought Neil Magny and lost via unanimous decision. Since then Martin parted ways with the UFC and is yet to fight again with a new promotion. Keeping in mind that he is still 31, he definitely has some years left and can return to action if and when he pleases.
