Marc Diakiese is a professional English Mixed Martial Artist currently competing in the Lightweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He was born on August 20, 1993, in London to parents who are originally from DR Congo. By the age of 17, he had already started training in martial arts and kickboxing. Today he boasts an impressive record having won 10 out of his 14 professional matches by knockout or submission.

Diakiese began his formal martial arts training at CFS FightZone under Sifu Quoc Nguyen when he was just 12 years old. After establishing himself as a promising talent early on, Diakiese turned pro as an MMA fighter at 19 years old and quickly made a name for himself after winning three back-to-back fights. This earned him a chance to train with renowned coaches like Renzo Gracie and helped him improve his skills significantly.

In 2016, Diakiese made his UFC debut against Lukasz Sajewski which ended up being one of the fastest knockouts recorded in UFC history – only 28 seconds into round 1! His next fight was even more impressive as he defeated Frankie Perez via technical knockout just 10 seconds before round 3 would have come to an end! These two performances established Marc’s reputation as one of the most exciting fighters in UFC’s lightweight division and earned him recognition from fans all around the world seeking thrilling action inside & outside The Octagon®️ .

Following these wins over Perez & Sajewski, Marc took part in some high ranked matchups against Drakkar Klose & Lando Vannata but unfortunately lost both bouts despite putting up a good fight each time out. In June 2019 however, Marc bounced back impressively defeating Joe Duffy via Unanimous Decision proving that no matter how hard any opponent pushes him – he will always keep coming back stronger than ever!

As mentioned earlier it has been 7 years since Diakiese first entered The Octagon®️ , making this 2021 season very special for him given all that has happened so far during this journey – it’s safe to say we are likely going to witness something great once again whenever Marc steps foot inside The Octagon®️ next time around; be sure not miss it!
