Brent, 30, grew up in Nashville and first started fighting at the age of 15. His father took him to the local gym and introduced him to Tae Kwon Do. Using the skill of Tae Kwon Do and the teachings of his father (who was an amateur), Brent has a professional record of 20-2-2. Brent hopes the show brings even more success to his career. In pursuit of being The Contender, he left behind his wife of six years, Leanne in Nashville.
Brent and his wife, Leeann, are country singers/songwriters and have a small recording studio set up in their house. When he finds time to relax, Brent enjoys writing and singing country music, spending time with his wife and two pit bulls (Duke and Scrappy) and reading the bible.
