Born on the mean streets of Brooklyn a young Sam Tatton grew up a fighter. Never taking the easy road, Sam often found him self in direct conflict with local bullies and various criminal organizations. His last attempt to take back his neighborhood found himself on the wrong side of the law as his vigilante approach landed him behind bars. Facing a long prison term he opted for a stint in the military and quickly earned top marks in most of his combat training. Bored with countless hours of training and no real combat Sam started an underground fight club for soldiers and soon became known through out the base as the “Midnight Assassin”. Once the Generals found out they were worried about the public image of the government, allowing such an organization to exist in our own military could cause a lack of confidence in our morals. With to many top ranking officials involved the only way to avoid a scandal was to avoid prosecution and give Sam an honorable discharge. After the military Sam’s fighting ways led him to the UFC where he has turned his strike first, strike hard attitude into a successful and profitable career.
