In 2015, Huang made a successful professional cage debut and caught the attention of ONE Championship. Since joining the promotion, she has registered many spectacular stoppage wins.

In 2016, the Taiwanese fighter won the Submission of the Year award due to her victory via gogoplata. This earned her a shot at ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion Angela “Unstoppable” Lee’s world title in 2017.
