Lane is Robson Moura’s first black belt in Florida! He was born in a small town in Indiana. As a kid, he was fascinated with martial arts but could not afford lessons. When Lane was 18 he got a job and immediately began training in Tae Kwon Do.
After a few years of Tae Kwon Do, Lane wanted to test himself in full contact competition so he began competing in Kickboxing, racking up a 21-4-1 record and winning the PKC National Championship. In 1996 he saw the first UFC and knew that to be a complete martial artist he had to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu!
Lane was one of the first MMA Fighters in the USA competing in the mid to late 1990s with a record of 12-4-1. He fought in the International Vale Tudo Challenge in Brazil and Pancrase in Japan, which were major rivals with the UFC at that time.
