Martin Nguyen (born March 16, 1989), is an Australian mixed martial arts fighter currently competing in the Lightweight, Featherweight and Bantamweight division of the ONE Fighting Championship.[3][4][5]

He is married with three children and before becoming a full time fighter he worked as a car mechanic. Despite having a big fan following in Asia he is relatively unknown in Australia. [6] [7]. On November 10th, 2017 he made history by beating Eduard Folayang to become the first two division champion in ONE Championship history. [8]

In 2018 attempted to win a title in a third ONE Championship division but lost on two occasions. Bibiano Fernandes beat him by split decision in a fight for the regular bantamweight title [9] and Kevin Belingon beat him by unanimous decision in a fight for the interim bantamweight title. [10] [11]

Nguyen still won 'Fighter of the Year' at the 2018 Asian MMA Awards. [12]
