Top Chinese prospect Wang Cong signs with the UFC

Wang Cong

The UFC has signed “The Joker” Wang Cong (5-0) to the promotion, per the UFC.

Wang received and signed the contract after submitting Paula Luna in a non-tournament Road to UFC fight this weekend.

Wang has everything she needs to become a star in MMA. An extensive kickboxing experience prior to fighting MMA saw her famously pick up a win over future UFC champion Valentina Shevchenko.

Wang is a part of the UFC Academy in Shanghai, sharpening her abilities under the watch of the UFC PI staff.

Since she’s started training MMA, she’s been in every aspect of the game, not just striking.

Although she’s only fought five times in professional MMA, she’s made those appearances count. She’s beaten Wu Yanan in Kunlun, Amena Hadaya in UAE Warriors, and Paula Luna in Road to UFC.

Wang is expected to fight in the UFC flyweight division.
