About Johnny Nunez

NCAA wrestler Johnny Nunez was raised by a single father, and his family struggled when he was young until they relocated from Los Angeles to Idaho. There, Nunez began wrestling, but he showed little promise in the sport at first. That all changed when he saw his teammate win the state tournament, and Nunez became determined to find success, wrestling in the off-season with renewed vigor before capturing the state championship himself the following year.

Nunez eventually won two Idaho state championships and a Junior FILA All-American berth, and he went on to wrestle for NCAA Division I Boise State University. He had over 2000 matches in wrestling and also became acquainted with several mixed martial arts pioneers through his involvement in the sport. After seeing their success in mixed martial arts, Nunez began training in boxing and kickboxing in preparation for his own mixed martial arts career.

He eventually made his professional debut in 2012, and won five bouts in a row before suffering his first loss. He competed extensively across North America before joining Evolve MMA and relocating to Singapore in late 2018. His goals in ONE Championship are to use his position to change people’s lives, including his own, make a living for his family, and help as many people as he can.
