Ben ’10’ Nguyen is a Vietnamese-American mixed martial artist who currently competes as a flyweight in the UFC. Born and raised in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, he now lives in Brisbane, Australia and considers himself an adopted Aussie.
In this episode, Ben takes us through all the obstacles he had to overcome to make it in the UFC. After a video of Ben winning the Nitro Bantamweight Championship went viral, most people assumed he was another overnight success. But this couldn’t be further from the truth. From being bullied as a child, to depression, to juggling a full-time job and an MMA career, these were all struggles that made him the successful fighter he is today. Oz Warriors spends a day with Ben ’10’ as he begins his training camp for UFC Fight Night 91.
