“Some people crumble under adversity while others rise through it.” Likewise, having been bullied at a very young age, Justin Wren has overcome his adversities from the past to become one of the best heavyweights in Bellator MMA.
Before his hiatus from Bellator, everyone thought that Justin was the next man in line for the heavyweight championship. But, the Texas native is not just a fighter who beats people inside the cage.
Instead, Wren is also a social activist who helps tribes in Congo’s jungles through the Fight for the Forgotten charity.
As a result, the 32-year-old is one of the most loved and popular fighters in the MMA scene. But, Justin did not earn all his love and fame in a single day. Rather, the Texas-born fighter had to face difficulties from very early on in his career.
Therefore, we have written this article to explain Wren’s early life to his current days as a social activist and all that happened in between. But first, let’s have a look at his quick facts.
