Sy had an up-and-down 2021 PFL routine season, with a no-contest against Nikolay Aleksakhin in the season opener before a dominant performance on the feet against Alexey Kunchenko at PFL 5.

Sy rose to prominence after earning the ISKA world championship in both 2008 and 2010. He then made the shift to MMA and has proven hes an unsafe striker whenever he actions in the cage.
After signing with the PFL, Sy rapidly made his existence felt with the fastest knockout in PFL welterweight history, ending up David Michaud in simply 17 seconds during the 2019 regular season. He went on to appear in the playoffs, with a majority draw versus Ray Cooper III in the semifinals and losing the tiebreaker due to the referee picking Cooper as the victor.
