A little about me, Justin “The Viking” Wren

First I want to say thank you to PROMMA.INFO for providing me the opportunity to share some insight with you guys!

I am so lucky and fortunate to have been a part of the show! I am extremely excited for the premiere coming up in a week. I have been a fan of the UFC since I was 13-years-old and I can honestly say that this HAS to be the best season yet.

I am very lucky to have been a part of such a big show in the making, and I am looking forward to re-living six weeks of my life with fans, family and friends! This season is packed full of stiff competition; every guy on the show wanted to walk away the winner (unlike past seasons where I feel some just wanted to be on TV).

The UFC handed out “Fight Night” bonuses to Tyson Griffin, Rafael dos Anjos, Rob Kimmons, and Aaron Simpson at tonight’s “UFC Fight Night 18: Condit vs. Kampmann”, at the Sommet Center in Nashville, Tennessee.
