About Kang Ji Won

Kang Ji Won is one of the most dangerous strikers in ONE Championship’s talent-rich heavyweight MMA division.

“Mighty Warrior” reeled off a trio of first-round knockout victories on the local scene in his native South Korea, which caught the attention of ONE Championship. He would join the roster in 2021.

The Wang Ho representative made a huge splash in his first appearance on the global stage, when he beat the buzzer with a late first-round TKO over Mehdi Bargi at ONE: UNBREAKABLE III. He followed that up with a come-from-behind knockout of former Greco-Roman Wrestling World Champion Amir Aliakbari just one month later to establish himself as a rising star in the heavyweight ranks.

Though he would suffer his first career loss to 17-time BJJ World Champion Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida, Kang bounced back in epic fashion by dispatching Paul Elliott at ONE X in March 2022. That victory netted him a US$50,000 performance bonus from ONE Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong.

Now, “Mighty Warrior” looks to string together some momentum and win another bonus when he meets undefeated promotional newcomer Ben Tynan at ONE Fight Night 16: Haggerty vs. Andrade on Prime Video this November 3.

Kang has yet to see the second round in his MMA career, and he will no doubt be looking to keep it that way.
