De loopbaan van Ben Nguyen bij de Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is beëindigd. Na zeven partijen binnen de Flyweight divisie, mag hij gaan zoeken naar een nieuwe uitdaging. Nguyen kent een professioneel record van 18-8 en vocht onder andere tegen Louis Smolka, Tim Elliott, Jussier Formiga en Wilson Reis.

Nguyen maakte het nieuws bekend via social media: “What a journey it has been! I want to thank everyone who has supported me since day one when I set out my goal to fight in the UFC. This is one of the toughest sports in the world, and like anything we have our ups and we have downs.

Unfortunately the down is that I have been released by the UFC.

I may not have had the opportunity to fight for UFC gold but I’m grateful to have fought for the UFC and shared the centre spotlight with many great flyweights. I have met a lot of great people and made heaps of friends throughout my time in the UFC. These are memories I will cherish forever.

I look forward 2019 and the new opportunities that may arise.”

Hiermee wordt is de Flyweight divisie van de UFC weer gekrompen. Er zullen ongetwijfeld promoties geintereseerd zijn in deze nieuwe ‘free agent’. Later meer!
