Jalin Turner is an American mixed martial artist and professional fighter who competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, or UFC. He was born in Fontana, California on April 1st, 1994 to parents Claude Turner and Sherri Turner. Jalin’s father introduced him to martial arts at a young age and he began training in kung fu at the age of six. After his family moved to Las Vegas when he was eight years old, Jalin shifted his focus from traditional martial arts to MMA when he joined TapouT Gym at the age of sixteen.

In 2014, after graduating high school, Jalin began pursuing MMA professionally by competing in amateur competitions such as BattleCage Xtreme championships (BCX). His first win came against Jon Adams via rear-naked choke submission in just 38 seconds into round one during BCX’s fight night event held on October 11th that year. Following this victory, Jalin went onto compete in many different regional circuits amassing an 8-3 amateur record along with four “Knockout of the Night” awards before making his debut as a professional fighter on June 24th 2016 with King Of The Cage (KOTC) promotion where he defeated Jerry Krantz via unanimous decision after three rounds of action-packed back and forth exchanges between both men inside the cage for which earned him ‘Fight of The Night’ honors from KOTC officials that night.

Following this success, Jalin started fighting professionally under various promotions across USA eventually joining Top FC where he had tremendous success including winning their lightweight title defeating former Pancrase Lightweight Champion Isao Kobayashi via first round KO in March 2018 – earning himself another ‘Knockout Of The Night’ award for his efforts that evening – becoming undefeated champion for Top FC organization with a record 4 consecutive wins inside cage without even going past second round once! This also led him signing multi-fight contract deal with UFC organization late last year followed by successful debut victory over Callan Potter via TKO during UFC 234 main card match up just couple months ago which secured him $50k bonus payouts too!
