Enough of Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov already. I'd like to introduce you to someone who could likely ruin both of these two men with a flick of his little finger, without even breaking a nail. Meet Martyn Ford, a terrifying-looking 6-foot-8 professional bodybuilder who is set to make his MMA debut in early 2019.
Nicknamed 'The Nightmare', the 33-year-old is the 140kg hulk who will surely be taking the world of mixed martial arts by storm soon, having recently been selected for Poland's Konfrontacja Sztuk Walki's line-up. His skills include having the biggest muscles anyone has ever laid eyes upon, putting the fear of God into anyone he looks at and hitting 100lb punching bags so hard, bolted frames are ripped out the wall.Ford initially started out wanting to be an England cricket player, but after a severe case of glandular fever, he changed paths In an Instagram post, he wrote: "I was lost when I finished playing cricket. I was convinced I would turn pro and that would be my life set out. With injuries, bad luck and just losing love for the game that never happened. But the void was never filled. I knew deep down I needed to succeed at something, that I had an ability to shine in some way." After losing his professional cricketing dream, he entered the world of fitness and bodybuilding and has never looked back since Recently, he has been working on his dexterity and speed - two things bodybuilders are not famous for But 'The Nightmare' seems to have the determination to make it work, saying: "Warming up, believe it or not, at one time I was incredibly flexible, it will come back, that much I do know. Reducing my weight training, increased stretching and flexibility, focusing on movements and being functional and explosive is now key" In addition to bodybuilding, the 33-year-old father has ambitions to be an actor You might recognise him from his roles in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Robin Hood The Rebellion, Undisputed 2 and Final Score Standing just one inch shorter than Hafthor Bjornsson — the behemoth who plays The Mountain in fantasy show, Game of Thrones - it seems Ford has a pretty good chance of success God bless anyone who has to face him in the ring
So, is anyone up for fighting him? Didn't think so.
