Born and raised in the small town of Biddeford, Maine, Allen “Monstah” Berube graduated from Biddeford High School in 1992. To escape the cold Maine winters, Allen Berube often visited friends who had moved to Tampa Bay. Allen Berube often fulfilled their only request: bring lobsters from home. Allen Berube soon parlayed this into a business, moving to Tampa eight years ago, and is now the proud owner of two “Monstah Lobstah” seafood restaurants in the Tampa/St. Petersburg area.
About a year and a half ago, Allen Berube began training in jiu jitsu under Rob Kahn at the Tampa Bay Gracie facility. Having wrestled in high school, and boxed since the age of thirteen, the self proclaimed “Crustacean Sensation” feels his well rounded game will lead to success on “The Ultimate Fighter 5.” A New Englander for life, Allen Berube roots for the Red Sox and Patriots while not training. Monstah lists “Gladiator” as his favorite movie, and “Deal or No Deal” and “I Love New York” as the shows he’ll miss watching while in the house. The two things he’ll miss the most: his wife Anetka, and going to church on Sunday.
