Ultimate Fighting Championship
Steinbess was part of the transfer of light heavyweight and middleweight fighters in the WEC to the UFC.
He was supposed to make his debut at UFC Fight Night 18 against Ryan Jensen, but the fight was pulled from the card. It was then rescheduled for UFC Fight Night: Diaz vs. Guillard. Steinbess lost the fight after Jensen applied a guillotine choke and the referee prematurely stopped the fight thinking Steve was out. Steinbess was instead giving the ref the thumbs up, the referee proclaimed that he thought Steinbess went limp.
Steinbess was expected to face Nick Catone on January 11, 2010 at UFC Fight Night 20, but was pulled from the card before the event due to injury.
Steinbess then faced Rob Kimmons on August 1, 2010 at UFC on Versus 2. Steinbess lost by unanimous decision to Kimmons and was released from the UFC.

Famous quotes containing the words ultimate and/or fighting:
“By a route obscure and lonely,
Haunted by ill angels only,
Where an eidolon, named Night,
On a black throne reigns upright,
I have reached these lands but newly
From an ultimate dim Thule
From a wild weird clime that lieth, sublime,
Out of spaceout of time.”
—Edgar Allan Poe (18091849)
“Failure or success seem to have been allotted to men by their stars. But they retain the power of wriggling, of fighting with their star or against it, and in the whole universe the only really interesting movement is this wriggle.”
—E.M. (Edward Morgan)
