While currently holding a 1-1 record in the UFC, Junior Tafa is resolute in his quest to etch his name among Australia’s top fighters. At 27, with a 5-1 MMA record, Tafa, younger brother of eight-fight UFC veteran Justin Tafa, transitioned from a successful kickboxing and boxing career to MMA in 2022.

Despite suffering his first career loss in his UFC debut against Mohammed Usman at UFC Vegas 71, Tafa rebounded with a first-round knockout victory over Parker Porter at UFC Singapore. Although his wrestling defense was tested by Usman, Tafa remains a prominent figure in Australia’s fighting scene, training alongside his brother and occasionally Mark Hunt.
