Interview with Martin Nguyen above
Martin Nguyen is set to return after over a year long layoff as he takes on Thanh Le at ONE: Inside the Matrix. The Australian is set to defend his lightweight title against a man on a three-fight win streak.
Australia’s Nguyen last fought August 2019 getting the TKO finish over Japan’s Koyomi Matsushima. Since then he’s been unable to return due to various factors including COVID-19 shutting down various events.
Now Nguyen is returning against a young opponent that has quite his fair share of experience: stints on The Ultimate Fighter, Dana White’s Contender Series, LFA. It seems Le has just about fought everywhere before getting a title shot against Nguyen.
In the full interview Nguyen discusses his upcoming title defense against Le, his Situ-Asian nickname, the best KO he’s ever seen, and more.
