Paul Elliott started in kickboxing, competing in World Kickboxing Association (WKA) which is one of the oldest and the largest organizations. Born and raised in Middlesbrough, England, Elliott switched over to MMA because he struggled getting fights in kickboxing. Elliott made his amateur debut in 2017 and went 2-0. That same year, six months later, he went pro and now he’s 3-0. In five career fights, Elliott has a perfect finish rate, all by KO/TKO. All those finishes miraculously came in at under a minute.
