With Glory MMA continuing to add to their variety of talented fighters, one undefeated prospect has begun to separate himself from the rest.

David Onama (7-0) has provided every reason to believe he will be a future title contender in the UFC. The Glory MMA product has used his quick hands and smart fight IQ to start his mixed martial arts career with a 9-0 amateur record and 7-0 pro record.

Onama has continued to fight with the Kansas City-based MMA promotion FAC that will allow him to train local and fight often. He has shown flashes of brilliance and may find himself in the UFC sooner rather than later.

Let’s take a look at the background for the undefeated prospect David Onama!

What is Next?

After an impressive 9-0 amateur run, David Onama has continued to dominate since turning pro two years ago. He now has a 7-0 pro record with high hopes for 2021. Onama previously told MMA Sucka “By the end of 2021, I will be in the UFC for sure. All my hard work I’ve been putting in, it’s definitely going to pay off pretty soon”. With four of seven pro fights coming by first-round KO, it is hard to say Onama does not have a valid argument to be in the UFC by the end of the year.

Onama’s latest win came one month ago at FAC 7 when he won the fight in 44 seconds because of a knee injury to his opponent. With little damage taken, we may see Onama look to turn this fight around quickly with the hopes of getting to the UFC as soon as possible. Onama has a great team behind him with Glory MMA and continues to develop into his world champion potential.
