. . . Miles Johns . . .

Miles was born and raised in Newton, Kansas alongside with two brothers and an older sister.[5] One of the brothers – Elijah – is also an aspiring professional mixed martial artist.[6] Miles started wrestling in the third grade, eventually winning the 5A Kansas state championship. Miles graduated from Newton High School, continuing to Newman University on a wrestling scholarship but became injured.[7] By the time he was healed up from the injury, the season was over and Johns decided to drop out of college and compete in mixed martial arts.[8]

Not long after dropping out of the college, a friend told him about an amateur fighting event coming up and Johns took a fight on the spot on three weeks’ notice.[9]

Starting his professional career in 2014, Johns compiled a 8–0 record fight mostly for Legacy Fighting Alliance where he won the LFA Bantamweight Championship. After accomplishing this feat, he was invited onto Dana White’s Contender Series 18, where he won a decision victory against Richie Santiago, in the process gaining a UFC contract.[10]
