Undefeated Korean #mma star Tommy Yang returns to the cage @thefightnation @mmainasia


Listed at 5-0 on Sherdog, MMA rising prospect Tommy Yang has several bouts not listed on the database.

At 12-0, Tommy is an ADCC Pro Asian Trials grappling champion, and a Pancrase tournament Champion.

A BJJ purple belt under myself and Braga Neto, Tommy hasn’t fought since 2010 where he defeated DREAM vet. David Gardner to win the Martial Combat Superfight belt. I’m sure many of you remember the David Gardner of Team Quest for his “Hello Japan” performance against Evolve star Aoki.

Following the conclusion of Martial Combat, Tommy initially signed an exclusive deal with One FC…however following over two years of inactively, Tommy has been forced to find a new promotion to earn an income from.

This weekend Tommy will be flying all the way to the country of Kuwait, along with Bellator fighter JJ Ambrose to compete for the Gladiator Fighting Championships.

GFC has a National TV deal in Kuwait, and large regional news coverage throughout the Middle East. Following some of the mistakes made on their first event, GFC has made the correct decision of bringing in American MMA ref’s led by UFC ref Blake Grice and conforming to unified rules.

with a quality TV deal, significant financial backing, and the willingness to work with professional ref’s with UFC experience I expect Kuwait’s Gladiator Fighting Championship to become one of the leading MMA promotions in the Middle East.

Looking forward to seeing the results of Tommy and JJ’s work this weekend!
