The next generation of French MMA

Famous figure on the amateur circuit, ranked n°4 in Europe in his weight category, France’s Théo Ulrich will make his professional debut on January 26, at the Zenith in Paris, during HEXAGONE MMA 13. A much-anticipated first fight for this mixed martial arts talent, who intends to make a name for himself.

Théo Ulrich loves confrontation; it’s part of his DNA. Kicked out of a soccer club because of repeated fights, the young man logically found his way into martial arts, and today excels in the rules of MMA. “When I put on the gloves for the first time, at the age of 16, my coach immediately told me that if I stayed serious, I could do great things in the cage. I wasn’t afraid, and I was a quick learner. By dint of rigor and hard work, Théo Ulrich has justified the hopes placed in him, to the point of reaching 4th place in the ranking of Europe’s best amateur fighters. “I knew I had to go through the amateur circuit before going professional. It allowed me to gain experience, correct my mistakes and progress. But now we’ve come to the end of a cycle.

“I don’t have any stress, that’s what I’m programmed to do”.

At the age of 22, Théo Ulrich is finally entering the big wide world, and is looking forward with ambition to the start of his professional career, scheduled for January 26 at Le Zénith in Paris. “I’m going to do everything I can to reach the top level. Ever since I started training, I’ve been working to join big organizations, fight in big venues, and make a living from my passion. Now’s the time to show up. But I have no stress, I’m programmed for this.” To ensure that he stacks all the odds in his favour as the deadline approaches, Théo Ulrich works out three times a day, taking advantage of a well-adapted job. “I work as a maintenance technician at night, in all the Paris metro stations. As I start my missions at 10pm, I have time during the day to train. It’s practical, but not always easy. All that hard work has to pay off!
