Marcus Brimage 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 3-1-0.

Marcus Brimage ("Ultimate Fighter") is no stranger to exhibiting his MMA skills on television—as he was a finalist on BET's "Iron Ring." Born in Colorado Springs, Brimage moved to Birmingham, Alabama, with his family when he was four years old after his father returned from being stationed in Germany. Brimage was a natural athlete growing up and lettered in track and field as well as football at Pinson Valley High School. He led the football team in tackles while playing nose tackle his senior year in 2003, and three days after graduating, he enlisted in the Air National Guard as a means to pay for college. In the eight years since, he has earned an associate's degree in criminal justice from Wallace State and a bachelor's degree from Faulkner University.

Brimage's interest in MMA was piqued by both the popular anime program "Dragonball Z," as well as a highlight reel he saw of Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. Seeking a way to get involved in the sport, one of his sergeant's introduced him to the Spartan Fitness training center in Birmingham, where he displayed tremendous potential. He eventually decided to move to Coconut Creek, Florida, to join American Top Team, and has compiled a 3-1-0 record since turning pro.
