The exciting South Korean fighter became a champion with multiple promotions when he finished Hong Jun-Young in the fourth round at TFC 17. That win helped extend his winning streak to nine, all by way of stoppage; five of his wins are via KO/TKO, and four are by way of submission.
Jo Sung-Bin began his professional mixed martial arts career in December 2014, when he defeated Toriki Yamamoto at ACF 7. He fought just once per year in 2017 and 2018 and is expected to make his UFC debut sooner than later in 2019.
For now, Jo Sung-Bin is continuing his preparations at Tiger Muay Thai, in Phuket, Thailand, where he has been training since January.
