Heun signs extended deal with World Series of Fighting
Jake Heun of Palmer has earned the right to keep going.
The 28-year-old said on Twitter that he secured a four-fight deal with the World Series of Fighting promotion in a big deal for the former college football player.
“Excited to be part of what WSOF is doing and looking forward to fighting in December,” he said on Twitter.
Heun, of Palmer High fame, has won eight of 12 fights since turning pro in 2011.
The 6-foot-2, 205-pound light heavyweight has a 2-1 career record in the WSOF:
He beat Kendrick Mires by decision at WSOF11 in 2014.
He lost to Clifford Starts by submission at WSOF19 last March.
And he beat Davin Clark by submission just a month ago at WSOF22.
Heun, nicknamed ‘The Honey Bear,’ is currently training in Thailand to work on his ground game.
So far in his MAA career he’s primarily known as a standup striker with four victories by knockout.
