What took so long?

Mongolian flyweight Nyamjargal Tumendemberel has signed a contract with the UFC, per his management On the Road posted on social media.

The Road to UFC veteran is 8-0.

"Art of Knockout" first got the broader fanbase's attention through his appearances on Road to UFC. In non-tournament fights, the 25 year old fought top Thai flyweights Topnoi Kiwram and Peter Danesoe in succession last year.

A close decision went to Tumendemberel against Topnoi, and would go on to choke Danesoe unconscious last August.

Prior to Road to UFC, Nyamjargal had fought for regional Mongolian promotions and Japanese organization GLADIATOR.

A debut date or opponent for Tumendemberel was not announced.
