Justin Lawrence spent his childhood in his hometown, where he attended Pacific High School. At the age of nine, under the influence of his step-father, Benny Voyles, who was a professional boxer and kickboxer, he began training in kickboxing. In no time, he twice won the St. Louis’ Golden Gloves Boxing Tournament Championship, and won 150 kickboxing fights. Beside that, he also won the IKF International Kickboxing Federation National Kickboxing Championship six times, as well as the Pan-American Kickboxing Championship twice. However, in the third grade, Justin decided to start training for wrestling, and then in 2007 he started his amateur MMA career.
Thus, Justin’s MMA career turned to professionalism in December of 2010, when he made his debut in the match against Max Martyniouk at Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu II, winning it via a unanimous technical decision, which marked the beginning of an increase of his net worth. In the following year, he defeated Pete Martin at Bobish’s Ultimate Cage Battles, after which he also defeated Jason Webb at Fight Me MMA 3.
In 2012, Justin faced John Cofer at The Ultimate Fighter 15 Finale in Las Vegas, Nevada, in his UFC debut, becoming the winner with the match named Fight of the Night which earned him Knockout of the Night bonus, adding a considerable amount to his net worth. Later that year, he made his debut in the featherweight division against Max Holloway, but he was defeated, after which he had one more loss to Daniel Pineda at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale, which released him from the UFC.
Nevertheless, Justin continued to line up successes, as he was transferred to the Resurrection Fighting Alliance (RFA), making debut in a match against Luis Saldana at RFA 10. In the next fight he won the RFA Featherweight Championship, defeating Mark Dickmand at RFA 17: Cochrane vs. Giagos. He defended the title in his next fight against Sam Tommer at RFA 25: Lawrence vs. Toomer, increasing his net worth by a large margin.
To speak further about his career, Justin signed a contract with Bellator MMA in 2015, making his debut in a fight against Sean Wilson, taking a victory. In the same year, he lost to Emmanuel Sanchez via split decision at Bellator 145. His next victory came in 2016, when he faced Isao Kobayashi.
