Afghan Bantamweight and Featherweight Champion Ahmad Qais Jasoor had a rough upbringing, facing economic and security issues in his troubled homeland of Afghanistan. Being a police officer, his father understood the value of self defense, and started young Jasoor in kung fu lessons when he was just 4 years old.
Falling in love with martial arts, Jasoor dreamed of becoming a professional martial artist from a young age, and at the age of 12, began boxing to set the stage for his later forays into combat sports. He quickly accummulated 20 amateur boxing bouts, competing in combat sambo as well to earn his Master of Sport certification.
Spurred by his many successes, he made his professional mixed martial arts debut in 2016, and remains undefeated with three lightning-fast stoppage wins. Along the way, he became a two-division champion in regional promotion HFC, earning him a place among the world’s best martial artists in ONE Championship.
