The UFC website has Justin Levens listed with a record of 7 wins and 2 losses in the middleweight division with current champion, Anderson Silva. In October of 2006, Levens won his match at the Halloween Fury 4 against Jorge Oliveria in a Round 1 knock out.

His professional record consisted of a total of 9 wins and 8 losses, 7 of his wins were by knockout. Levens, known for his heavy hands, held a black belt in Ruas Vale Tudo which is a Brazilian style of combat fighting that essentially means "anything goes."
