Background[edit]

Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, Jhun competed in football through high school and also competed in wrestling during his junior and senior years.

Jhun returned to the regional circuit, and went on a ten-fight losing streak during which he competed at Strikeforce: Triple Threat against Eugene Jackson in a Middleweight bout on December 8, 2006. Jhun, who had faced Jackson in his professional debut, again lost in the rematch via rear-naked choke submission in the first round.
