89) Justin Wren

MMA Fighter & Humanitarian

Born: 27 April 1987, Dallas, Texas, United States of America

Justin’s record in the UFC was 15-2 but after six years of battling depression and addiction he stepped away from fighting to find a higher purpose. He found some of the forgotten people of the Pygmy Tribe (The Batwa) deep in the Congolese/Ugandan Jungle. They were beaten down by economic hardships like enslavement, disease, and general hopelessness.

So, Justin went above and beyond to do all he could. He started the Fight for the Forgotten Initiative, and as of 2019 has helped free 1500 people. They have access to clean water and work their own 3,000 acres of land to provide for themselves.

Justin is nicknamed The Big Pygmy.
