Ho made the move to go pro earlier this year after going undefeated as an amateur mixed martial artist. While fighting as an ammy, Ho racked up an incredible 7-0 record over the course of three years. In his pro debut in February, Ho recorded another amazing knockout win by way of spinning back-fist.
