    This one just went up today. He's fighting Bellator 141 to raise awareness of his cause and passion. I know this technically shouldn't be in Heavies, but frankly it's such a strong cause that I hope that Mods allow it.

    Liked this guy since he was on TUF. I was wondering what happened to him and the next thing I know there was a thread on here saying what he's been up to the last couple of years. Real interesting guy.

    No problem by me.

    Such a badass, and working for a great cause. Literally fighting to help suffering people in Africa. Give them the means to have clean water, and promoting their safety.

    I still remember when he was just the prospect from the HW TUF season, those years ago, then suddenly left MMA to live in Africa doing charity.

    Amazing guy, I wish him great luck. Will definitely be watching his fight(s)

    100% man. Look for the art and graphics on his intro and banner. The team/company I work with is working hard to make sure it is worthy of "The Big Pygmy".

    edit: Also, just got the text that I'll be out at 141 to support him. *ultra-fist pump*

    I remember a few years ago he contracted a flesh-eating infection that attacked his mouth while in Africa. Dude is a warrior.

    He needs to take his talents to Mauritania next, fuck Bellator. Rampant slavery there.

    Wren looked like he had a ton of potential on the TUF heavys.

    Will be interesting to see how he looks 5 years since.

    it is your duty as a sherdogger to find a way to be noticed on camera and give a shoutout to the Heavies

    Well I'm pretty sure I'll be more backstage or in the crowd (after seeing him prefight) and not a freaking cornerman.... but now it's a challenge, :icon_chee

    Hopefully he can take a break, relax, and get away for a bit from the rough life he was exposed to

    by training mma ......


    No, seriously

    Awesome guy. Will be rooting for him and his endeavors for keeps. Always cringe worthy with Joe's off color jokes especially with the guy being so nice.
