A mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter that is 28 years old and hails from South Korea is Jeong Yeong Lee. In mixed martial arts, “The Korean Tiger” competes at the featherweight division and has a record of 10-1.
In February of 2014, Lee began his adventure as a professional mixed martial arts fighter and won three consecutive fights. At Road FC 39, which took place in June of 2017, he engaged in his fourth bout, which was against Se Yeong Kim. During the course of the evening, Lee had the first defeat of his professional career, which was a setback for him. As a result of his opponent’s superior performance for the bulk of the two-round fight, “The Korean Tiger” was defeated by a unanimous decision and was unable to win the fight.
Lee was able to recover from the defeat and went on to construct an astounding seven-fight victory run after defeating his opponent. In February of 2023, the South Korean fighter was previously observed engaging in combat. On the occasion of UFC Fight Night 218, the 28-year-old fighter faced off against Zha Yi and emerged victorious through a split decision.
