Martin “The Situ-Asian” Nguyen has a deep connection to Vietnam.

Though he grew up in Australia, he is the son of Vietnamese parents, who emigrated Down Under after the Vietnam War to build a new life.

They made sure the ONE Lightweight and Featherweight World Champion learned about his roots and maintained a bond with his ancestral home.

During his trip to Vietnam, Martin "The Situ-Asian" Nguyen made an emotional visit to his grandmother who helped raise him.
