The MMA Fighter Who Beat Up The Weigh-in Bully Speaks



(Sherdog Photo)


Last night we posted the viral video of Ben “10” Nguyen being bullied at the weigh-ins by his opponent Julian “Julez The Jackal” Rabaud. Ben Nguyen simply smiled off the attempt to intimidate and when the fight happened he destroyed “The Jackal” in under 30 seconds. The fight took place at Nitro 11 almost exactly a year ago today.


Following the viral video below is Ben Nguyen’s “Ask Me Anything” regarding the ordeal!



I’m that guy who knocked out that tatted up jerk and made it to the front page of Reddit:


I’ve been a big time lurker here for 5+ years and now recently started posting. I am a professional MMA fighter, computer geek, and avid motorcycle rider. You could say I like doing what I like to do. My nationality is Vietnamese American from SOUTH DAKOTA and I am now chasing the dream Down Under! AMA!


EDIT: Holy crap, did not expect this to blow up and make it to the front page again. I need to buy a lotto ticket NOW!


EDIT #2: Needed to add South Dakota to my bio. The state doesn’t receive enough love.


EDIT #3: I love and have kittens named Tofu and Yuki! Don’t break Reddit!: http://imgur.com/Vne0eZi


EDIT #4: For the people asking what his response was after the fight, he said “I know he has skills but it was nothing but F***ing luck” http://themmacorner.com/2014/07/22/julian-julz-the-jackal-rabaud-a-tale-of-pain-and-glory/


EDIT #5: Doing an AMA might have been a bad thing to start at 2AM in the morning. Need to catch some z’s Reddit! I’ll be back on in a few hours to answer some more questions. G’night or should I say G’Day!


EDIT # 6: Ok, Lad Bible fine, BJPenn.com alright, but front page on Reddit for the past 4 hours?? GTFO! Am I dreaming??


EDIT #7: Just wanted to take the time to thank everyone on the interwebz for making this possible. Never in a million years would I thought I’d be doing my OWN AMA. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!


EDIT #8: Still overwhelmed by the amount of support I’ve received and I am so thankful for it. It’s been an exciting 12 hours answering everyone’s questions. Thank you EVERYONE!
