Guillard vs Girtz

Justin Wren returns to wrestling. On August 28 on the Spike-televised portion of the “Bellator 141: Guillard vs. Girtz” card he will take on Josh “The Hammer” Burns at the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, California. “The Big Pygmy Viking” comes back to wrestling after five years and twelve days, a time which has seen him battle addiction and discover a new battle.

After leaving to battle his addiction, traveled to the Democratic Republic of the Congo where he found himself fighting for others. Many of the Mbuti Pygmies were enslaved, living only on scraps. Wren responded by starting “Fight for the Forgotten.” He and his staff have “bought the land of the slave owners, and have thus far legally given 2,740 acres of rainforest to the Pygmies, effectively freeing them from slavery.” He tells more of his story and that of they Mbuti in his upcoming book, Fight for the Forgotten: How a Mixed Martial Artist Stopped Fighting for Himself, and Started Fighting for Others, which comes out September 17.
