Top Taiwanese welterweight prospect Jeff ‘Machine’ Huang burst onto the mixed martial arts (MMA) scene two years ago with a quickfire knockout of his opponent under 20 seconds on his professional debut.

The National Taipei University business graduate made the bold move against all odds to resign from his high-ranking consultant job at an American global mutual funds company in 2011 and pursue his dream of becoming a professional mixed martial artist.

Travelling all over the world to train in the various elements of MMA next, his well-rounded skills can be attributed to his stints spent in the United States as well as with the renowned Brazil Top Team.

One of the MMA pioneers in Taiwan, Huang is ferocious in his stand up carved from a solid background of Karate and Muay Thai, and is equally aggressive in his ground and pound game.

The Karate black belt and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blue belt has never lost a fight in Taipei. His first three wins were scored in local promotion Pacific Rim Organized Fighting Championship (PRO FC), before he got picked up by ONE Fighting Championship (ONE FC), Asia’s largest MMA organization.

Giving his home fans a night to remember, Huang made a remarkable ONE FC debut when he knocked out Indian seven-time Muay Thai national champion Bala Shetty at ONE FC: WAR OF DRAGONS held in Taipei on 12 July 2014.
