ONE Hero Series China Contract Winner Xie Wei was a troublemaker as a child, but all of that changed when he saw videos of the famed Shaolin Temple on the internet and moved there to study at the age of 14. He spent four years training under the tutelage of the Shaolin warrior monks, even becoming a coach himself, before moving to Qingdao to pursue his longtime dream of becoming a professional mixed martial artist.
Xie thrived in his new training environment, becoming a champion in a regional Chinese promotion while compiling a perfect 5-0 record in kickboxing. His excellent professional record caught the eye of ONE Championship, where he began competing in both ONE Hero Series and ONE Warrior Series. After an incredible run of five straight knockout wins, Xie’s dreams came true as he earned a contract to compete on the global stage.
Xie is primarily a striker, with most of his wins coming by way of knockout, and he is especially dangerous with his boxing techniques and elbows from the clinch. After dominating the competition en route to the ONE Championship Circle, he is proud to have reached the global level of competition, and he looks forward to making a name for himself against the very best martial artists in the world.
