John Albert from "The Ultimate Fighter" is one of the mixed martial artists featured in Season 14 of the Spike TV reality competition series. Going into the season, his record is 6-1-0.

Gifted with natural athletic talent, John Albert ("Ultimate Fighter") played soccer and wrestled through junior high school, but decided not to pursue these sports at Governor John Rogers High in Puyallup, Washington. Upon graduating in 2005, Albert began plying his trade as a commercial electrician, when a friend approached him asking for help training for an upcoming mixed martial arts bout. Despite not having wrestled in four years, Albert's takedown ability and defense wowed everyone in the gym. On the flipside, Albert was wholly unprepared for the punches and kicks that came his way in sparring sessions, and was determined to become versed in those disciplines and become a mixed martial artist.

Albert soon sought out Dennis Hallman's Victory Athletics Gym in Olympia, Washington, where he still trains today. He has since abandoned his previous career as an electrician to focus on fighting full time, and said being selected for this season of "The Ultimate Fighter" was one of the greatest things to ever happen to him. After training with "The Ultimate Fighter" alumnus Len Bentley back home, he believes he is fully prepared for the trials and tribulations that come with training and living with fifteen other mixed martial artists for the next six weeks.
