Tafon Nchukwi has just four professional MMA fights to his name, but will be making his UFC debut at UFC Vegas 17. Tafon already has a lot of excitement behind his debut. Nchukwi’s first fight in the UFC comes after his stellar performance on the Contender Series earlier this year when he KO’d Al Matavao with an absolutely brutal head kick.

Tafon has a lot of power in his Muay Thai striking and has slowly whittled his weight down from the heavyweight division all the way down to 185lbs. Nchukwi has already received very loft praise comparing his vicious Muay Thai striking style to that of boxing great Mike Tyson. Tafon’s debut fight against fellow Contender Series alum, Jamie Pickett, is sure to be a cant miss fight that is near certain to deliver a wild fight and finish.
