UFC Signs Chinese Standout Wang Guan

This last Tuesday, the UFC announced that they have signed 31-year old Chinese MMA standout Wang Guan (15-1-1). Guan, a featherweight from Beijing, has signed a multi-fight contract with the company, and are in hopes that he will make his debut on the upcoming June 17th card at the Singapore Indoor Stadium against a yet to be determined opponent.

Coming in hot, with a three fight win streak intact, Guan promised to keep a clean record in the UFC, and said that the signing is a dream come true for him. Said Guan:

“I will continue to keep a clean record in the UFC, showing the world my ‘China Power.’ It’s a dream come true, my ability is approved by the UFC now. This also means the opponents I face next will be the best in the world. This will push me to train even harder.”

With his last victory coming by way of TKO, he brings to the table a hard hitting style that may surprise some in the division. Dubbed “The Dongbei Tiger”, Wang Guan looks to add a little depth to the division, most notably carrying 10 knockout wins to his accord, along with 3 submission victories and two decisions in his favor.
