Who Is Baby Hulk? Getting to Know the Streetbeefs Star



Who Is Baby Hulk? Getting to Know the Streetbeefs Star

Although this weekend's MF & DAZN X Series 13 fight card contains a number of noteworthy names, it appears that influencer boxing fans are more excited to see Baby Hulk perform than anybody else.

But who is Baby Hulk? And how has he become one of the main attractions in this ever-changing influencer boxing landscape?

Well, despite his stature, you might be surprised to know that baby Hulk has quite the martial arts pedigree. And even though many people are doubting him heading into this weekend's match, Baby Hulk has been the underdog all his life — and that has not phased him once.

Who is Baby Hulk?

Baby Hulk Background

Despite being exactly five feet tall, David Wilson — aka “Baby Hulk” — has still made Mixed Martial Arts the center of his life. After being born in 1994 and raised in Wilmington, North Carolina, Baby Hulk wrestled at UNC Pembroke in college.

Yet, even after his college sports career came to a close, Baby Hulk realized that he wasn't ready to call it quits on combat sports quite yet.

Soon after his college career ended, Baby Hulk began training MMA — and has amassed a 4-2 professional record in the sport ever since going pro in 2020.

Although it's Baby Hulk's unsanctioned MMA fights which have earned him international superstardom.

Baby Hulk Streetbeefs

Because Baby Hulk is always so much smaller in height compared to his opponents, it's always an interesting sight to see him performing.

Yet, just because he's small in stature doesn't mean that Baby Hulk can't stand and bang — which is proven by his impressive success in American backyard fighting club and YouTube channel, Streetbeefs.

While all of Baby Hulk's Streetbeefs YouTube videos have millions of views, none went more viral than the match he had against Viking, back in 2020.

This fight — which, at nearly 47 million views, is the most viewed Streetbeefs fight in history — proves that height is just a number, when it comes to Baby Hulk.

The North Carolina product managed to get his hands on Viking early and often, and ultimately secured a finish via ground and pound — making him the Streetbeefs microweight champion.

Yet, that fight is just one of many viral victories that Baby Hulk has produced in the Streetbeefs ring.

Although Baby Hulk isn't content with that title belt. He is now setting his sights on another stage, where he will make his long-awaited and highly-anticipated debut this weekend.

Baby Hulk Misfits Boxing

This weekend, Baby Hulk will be performing on the MF & DAZN X Series 13 fight card in Nashville, Tennessee, against Joey Knight.

Most people seem to believe that Baby Hulk is in for a rude awakening when he fights Knight — mainly because Baby Hulk is an MMA fighter, but this Misfits bout is going to be contested under a boxing ruleset.

Given that Knight has a seven-inch height advantage, Baby Hulk might have a hard time getting into range and landing the punches he'll need to produce success.

Yet, if there's one thing we know about Baby Hulk, it's that he can never be counted out.

Grant Young is a sports writer from San Francisco. He has had two professional Muay Thai fights: he got knocked out in one, and got a knockout in the other. When it comes to his favorite fighters, it's Israel Adesanya, and then it's everyone else.
