Mark Zuckerberg’s trainer has joined the Professional Fight League (PFL). Indeed, the MMA organization announced today (Monday, June 19, 2023) via social media that it has signed Khai “The Shadow” Wu, a 27-year-old Featherweight prospect.

Wu (7-4) gained attention last year when he was seen working out on the mats with Meta’s CEO, and Zuckerberg has since made him one of his training partners. Wu, in fact, is one of the fighters that introduced Zuckerberg to mixed martial arts (MMA). The millionaire has also lately participated in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, winning a medal.

“The Shadow” won again in February 2023, defeating Kimbert Alintozon at WOTD: “Enter The Dragon 09” in Taiwan (his native country). Prior to that triumph, the 27-year-old had experienced consecutive losses for the first time in his career.

Wu is a Bellator veteran who has also participated in California Cage Wars (CCW) and Urijah Faber’s A1 fight. PFL has not said if he would compete in the 2024 Featherweight season or in showcase fights.

With the help of Khai Wu Zuckerberg grabbed Gold in his first jui-jutsu tournament

Even though Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg is in charge of the world’s largest social networking site, he makes time for his hobbies and interests. A recent example of this was highlighted in a post made by Facebook’s CEO. Zuckerberg just competed in his first Jiu-Jitsu event, winning gold and silver medals. “Competed in my first jiu-jitsu tournament and won some medals for the Guerrilla Jiu-Jitsu team. Thanks to Dave Camarillo, Khai Wu, and James Terry for training me!,” wrote Zuckerberg.

Zuckerberg’s passion in Jiu-Jitsu is well known around the world since he discussed the martial art extensively on the Joe Rogan podcast last year.

He has recently demonstrated an increasing interest in fitness. Zuckerberg completed the 2023 Stanford Medicine My Heart Counts 5K in 19:34, falling short of his declared goal of sub-20 minutes.
