Khai “The Shadow” Wu (1-0) shed enough light on his talents as a mixed martial artist during his pro debut that Bellator couldn’t keep the proud member of Omni Movement and Guerrilla Jiu-Jitsu in the dark when returning to San Jose, California for Bellator 199.
Wu was willing to travel halfway around the world as a means of leaving the amateur ranks in the rearview mirror, accepting a bantamweight bout in Taiwan against Masatoshi Okuno (0-4) and wrapping a bow on the matter in a minute flat.
Please enjoy this quick breakdown of @khai_theshadow_wu MMA Pro Debut over Taiwan this past weekend. The keys for this fight was finding the home with the basic jab + cross/overhand combination while combining quick footwork to establish dominate angles. This allowed Khai Wu to remain in a safe range where his opponents power is diminished while Khai's power (thanks to dominate stance vs off balance opponent) is at full potential ready to be released onto the soft temple of his opponent. Khai felt confident in his ability to gauge distance and thus firing a lethal 6 hit chain combo that finished the fight. As a gym, we are just getting started in the fight game, but we recognize there are levels to this. We are excited to show Fight Fans our system. Great job to our striking coach @chaofucious for all the work he has put in so far with us. The striking skill level in our gym has definitely went up thanks to his tutelage. "Fighting is chaos in human motion. Let us help you learn how to control and thrive in the chaos." We do have a few spots open in our Fight Team, however we are invite only.

Following a flawless performance at Reign Fighting Championship (RFC) 1, the head-honchos of the Paramount-funded MMA organization were keen to acquire this young terror out of Tracy; therefore, they contracted Wu’s catlike reflexes to bat around his next opponent at Bellator 199: Cass Bell (0-0).
