As an amateur, Khalil made his MMA debut with organizations such as Tuff-N-Uff and King of the Cage going 6-1. He later made his professional debut with the Resurrection Fighting Alliance, winning all four of his fights before making his promotion debut with UFC TUF season 23. The UFC Fighter is known to be dating influencer Mia Kang; let’s get to know about the British-Swiss model.
A look at Mia Kang’s career and how she met with Khalil Rountree?
Mia Kang is a known British-Swiss fashion model and Muay Thai fighter based out of New York City. She is also a social media influencer on body confidence and a television host for the game show Spy Games. After being bullied as a kid for being overweight, Kang decided to slim down and later entered the modeling industry. The 34-year-old developed harmful diet habits, which she carried on later, such as 10-day water fasting.
With the body standards set for models, she was diagnosed with eating disorders. Going four days without food became normal, and the model became obsessed with becoming thinner. Mia Kang also forced herself into unhealthy habits by being on a diet of “Marlboro Lights, black coffee, and alcohol”. She shared episodes where Kang even contemplated suicide, reaching an all-time low.
Later, she also began her boxing club in Soho, New York, named ‘Killa Girl Gang’. Mia Kang and Khalil Rountree have been dating since 2019. Although no official statement is shared on how they met, the couple has been seen sharing posts on social media.
