World Lethwei ChampionshipEdit
In 2017, Too Too signed an exclusive contract with World Lethwei Championship. Despite being both among the top ranked Lethwei fighters in Myanmar and both signed to the WLC, Tun Tun Min and Too Too have refused to fight each other due to their long-lasting friendship.
In 2014, both men had fought each other under Muay Thai rules at Thai Fight in Thailand, with Tuhtaboyev won by split decision. Since then, Too Too had been celebrated in his home country of Myanmar, winning the WLC Middleweight World Champion title in 2018. Meanwhile, Tuhtaboyev had been more focused on Muay Thai, having been involved in several big fights. In their rematch under Lethwei rules, the WLC Middleweight World Championship would be on the line.
As the reigning WLC Middleweight champion, Too Too received a challenge from a former opponent Naimjon Tuhtaboyev. On January 31, 2020, Too Too faced Naimjon Tuhtaboyev inside the Thein Pyu Stadium at WLC 11: Battlebones and the event was streamed live on UFC Fight Pass. Both fighters were eyeing a knockout, with Too Too being effective with his leg kicks and headbutts. However, judges gave Tuhtaboyev the victory via close split decision.
Outside the ringEdit
In 2022, Too Too was actively protesting and taking part in the anti-coup protests and was arrested for taking part in demonstrations against the 2021 Myanmar coup d'état. Too Too was arrested at his home in Minbu Township in Mynamar’s Magway Region with weapons and explosives in his possession.
