The 26-year-old scored a unanimous decision over Kendrick Miree of Georgia in a light heavyweight mixed martial arts bout during the World Series of Fighting 11 card in Daytona Beach, Fla.

All three judges scored the fight 29-28 for Alaska’s ‘Honey Bear.’

“Going the distance is never my plan, but I’m always ready for it to happen,” Heun told me.

Heun, of Palmer High fame, improved to 6-3 as a professional fighter. This was his second win by decision.

Heun controlled the tempo fight and landed nearly twice as many strikes [88 to 46] as his opponent.

“I feel like my cardio won me this fight,” he said.
