Professional mixed-martial arts fighter Jake Heun of Palmer has a take-all-comers attitude.

He’ll take on anybody, anywhere. Even a different country.

The Honey Bear is headed to South Korea to take on Mu Bae Choi, aka, the Heavy Tank of Busan, a decorated wrestler and one of his country’s first MMA fighters. It all goes down Aug. 12.

“I am excited to fight a Korean legend on his home turf,” Heun tweeted.

Heun, of Palmer High fame, has a 10-6 pro record and is coming off a loss at World Series of Fighting 34 on New Year’s Eve.

He’s known for going all out and not leaving anything in the hands of the judges. He’s also got an extensive training background in Tiger Muay Thai.

Choi [12-6] is a big puncher with knockout power and a veteran of the PRIDE series. But he hasn’t fought since 2015.
