PFL Roster Adds Khai “The Shadow” Wu

The PFL roster is loaded with elite talent from all walks of the combat sports world. Earlier this year, the fastest growing and most innovative league in sports added heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou. Now, they have signed Khai Wu.

“The Shadow” competes in the bantamweight division and is a frequent training partner to none other than Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

Wu has a handful of professional fights on his resume, including bouts in Bellator MMA. The 27-year-old is a native of California and a former CCW featherweight champion.

“Been a long time coming,” Wu posted on Twitter following the announcement. “Thank you (PFL) for the opportunity. Also thank you everyone for the support through the years and helping me get here.”

Working With Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg

Wu was getting assistance for this recent UFC Fight Pass debut at Urijah Faber’s AI Combat 5 with Zuckerberg, who developed his strong interest in the sport during the COVID-19 pandemic.

All that training with Wu paid off earlier this year for Zuckerberg when he captured gold and silver medals at a BJJ tournament. The social media mogul thanked Wu and his other Guerrilla Jiu Jitsu teammates for all their help in his training.

Wu’s Resume Includes Handful Of Finishes

During his time inside the cage, Wu has displayed an ability to score the finish. He owns one win by knockout and two more by submission. From his professional debut in 2018 through his first eight fights he was 6-2 with a first round finish in his first bout over Masatoshi Okuno.

HIs first submission win came later that same year when he locked up a rear-naked choke on Yuki Tashiro.
