Niu took interest in martial arts after being influenced by his father. He trained in sanda for 4 years before moving on to boxing and competed in three professional boxing fights. He transitioned to MMA three years ago. Niu enjoys the adrenaline that comes with the sport and looks up to his cousin Alex Niu, who is his coach and owner of Dragon Warrior gym. When he is not competing, he works as a trainer at Dragon Warrior gym imparting the finer points of MMA to children.
