Tyrone Spong is comfortable with his status in combat sports. He’s well-known in the kickboxing world and recently transitioned into MMA. While he continues to train for both forms of sports, Spong goes where the money is best.
“I’m in a position where I can basically do whatever I want in this game of combat sports,” said Spong to Bloody Elbow. “I train my boxing, kickboxing and MMA. We’re all prize fighters so we need to make good money to support our families. I’ll go where the money is best.”
In kickboxing, Spong is 69-6 as he prepares for his return at GLORY 9. It comes from the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City, NY.
Spong made his MMA debut by finishing Travis Bartlett in round one at the inaugural World Series of Fighting (WSOF) show. He was featured as the co-main event of WSOF 3, but pulled out as he was unable to obtain a visa in time.
