Jay-Jay “The Māori Kid” Wilson grew up bouncing between family homes in South Auckland.

Now based in San Diego, California, he fights out of Alliance Jiu Jitsu with Bellator MMA. With notable wins against Pedro Carvalho, Tywan Claxton, and Sergio DeBari, he holds a 9-0-0 record and views MMA as a healthy outlet for childhood anger.
