Li Jingliang is a Chinese mixed martial arts fighter who has been competing in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) since 2013. He is currently competing in the welterweight division and holds an impressive record of 19-6-0. In addition to his fighting career, Li Jingliang also works as a coach at China Top Team and is involved with several charitable initiatives in his native country, including providing medical aid for poverty stricken areas.

The early years of Li’s MMA career were spent fighting all over China, honing his skill set before ultimately making it into the UFC. His debut was on November 9th 2013 against David Michaud during The Ultimate Fight Night 34: Saffiedine vs Lim event where he won via decision after three rounds of back-and forth action. Since then he has gone on to compete in fourteen more fights within the organization, amassing wins and title shots along the way. His most recent win was against Neil Magny which turned out to be one of his best performances yet as it involved him taking down Magny multiple times throughout their five round encounter and ultimately earning himself a unanimous decision victory afterwards.

In addition to being successful inside the cage, Li Jingliang has also done plenty outside of it too; this includes becoming an ambassador for Marvel Avengers Academy alongside fellow UFC star Zhang Weili as well as becoming a global representative for Everlast Worldwide Inc., a boxing apparel company based in the United States. Furthermore, he regularly visits schools around China to talk about anti-bullying measures and encourage kids from all backgrounds to pursue their dreams no matter what may stand in their way – be that financial troubles or something else entirely – while simultaneously inspiring them by telling stories about his own journey towards success through MMA competition alongside other fighters like himself who have found success despite not having much money when they first started out either. On top of this, he’s recently opened up two gyms within Shanghai too: one dedicated towards teaching striking techniques while another focused upon teaching grappling abilities; both aimed towards helping people become stronger athletes regardless of whether they’re interested in pursuing professional combat sports or not!

Ultimately what sets Li Jingliang apart from many other martial artists today is how hard he works both inside and outside of competition alike; always striving for excellence no matter what obstacles are placed before him – both physical or mental – while still finding time amidst these struggles to give back whenever possible through charity work that helps those less fortunate than himself get ahead too!
