Daniel Straus was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. After a stellar high school wrestling career, Daniel transitioned into Mixed Martial Arts almost seamlessly. Beginning his MMA career in 2009 and after a rocky start (4-3), Daniel rattled off 10 straight wins and signed with Bellator in 2011. Since then, Daniel has improved his overall record to 25-6 and captured the Bellator MMA Featherweight Title not once, but twice. Daniel currently resides in Pompano Beach, FL and trains out of American Top Team in Coconut Creek, FL. When Daniel isn't competing or training, he is spending time with his daughter and fiancee, riding his motorcycle, and practicing his hand at gardening.
