Was it the Mayans, Nostradamus, or Miss Cleo who predicted that 2012 would be a turbulent, world-changing year? Whoever it was must have seen one of kickboxing's most devastating young phenoms in their crystal ball. That young killer would be none other than Tyrone Spong, a brutal kickfighter who will be making his mixed martial arts debut in 2012.
At just 25 years of age, Spong has embedded himself in the world of kickboxing, winning multiple championships and racking up a 67-6-1 record. Spong recently moved from the Netherlands, where he trained under the tutelage of legendary kickboxer Ernesto Hoost, to Imperial Athletics, a Brazilian Top Team gym in Florida. There he trains with such elite fighters as Rashad Evans, Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva, Jorge Santiago, and Gesias "JZ" Cavalcante.
And what's an apocalyptic fighter without the proper 2012 promo???
