Joshua Van, a mixed martial artist known as “The Fearless,” rose to sudden fame in 2023 with victories in his first two UFC fights. Despite being a relatively short UFC rookie at 5 feet 5 inches (1.65 m), his height does not intimidate him when facing opponents.
In his most recent fight against Kevin Borjas at UFC 295 (which featured the Prochazka vs. Pereira main card), Joshua Van improved his MMA record to 9 wins and 1 loss.
Originally from Myanmar, Joshua has been living in Houston since his parents moved there when he was 12 years old. He competed in the flyweight division as an American national and began his professional journey at Fury FC.
After making his debut in 2021, Joshua Van competed in 8 matches at Fury FC, with only one loss. In June 2023, at the age of 21, he signed with Dana White’s UFC on short notice. His debut fight against Zhalgas Zhumagulov resulted in a victory via split decision. This win made Joshua Van the first Burmese-born fighter to enter the UFC and win the promotion.
