Martin Nguyen: a true martial arts Artist

In the blink of an eye, Eduard Folayang dropped like a fly after a punch came from Martin Nguyen that hit him square in the jaw causing Folayang to be rendered unconscious. This wasn’t what proved Nguyen as a true martial arts artist though. It was the fact that soon as Folayang dropped, Nguyen immediately went to him and checked his friend.


The concern and worry on his face proved that though mixed martial arts may be a violent sports, real warriors are sportsmanlike and have true concern for each other. Even if they are enemies on the cage, outside, there is brotherly love and concern for their fellow fighters.


Eduard lost his title to Martin Nguyen helping Nguyen make history. Nguyen now offiially holds not one but two titles simultaneously. Martin Nguyen is now the current Featherweight Champion as well as the Lightweight Champion.
