Guan has suffered just a single defeat as a professional MMA fighter and that loss came to Bekbulat Magomedov at Ranik Ultimate Fighting Federation 11 in 2013. Guan is also returning to action for the first time in almost a year, with his last bout being a win over Bakhitbek Khojaev in December of 2016.
