Justin Wren from "The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights" is one of the MMA fighters featured on Season 10 of the Spike TV reality sports competition.

Growing up, Justin Wren was a huge fan of the UFC. His fascination grew into a passion, which turned into his career. From sneaking UFC tapes into his house as a child, to now being on "The Ultimate Fighter," Wren is living the life he always dreamed of.

Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, Wren attended Dallas Bishop Lynch High School, where he was named a two-time National Champion wrestler. With two Olympic gold medal winners as coaches, Wren had superb mentors to hone his wrestling prowess. During his last year at Dallas Bishop Lynch, he spent time training at the Olympic Training Center. He attended Iowa State University and joined the wrestling team, but spent his freshman year as a medical red shirt following elbow surgery. During his recovery time, he worked on his mixed martial arts skills and realized the time was now to turn pro. Even though Iowa State offered him a full scholarship, he turned it down in order to pursue his professional career in mixed martial arts.

The man who had become a fierce warrior was nothing like the awkward and shy teenager he once was. Classmates made fun of Justin and harassed him. At times it got physical. I just remember every part of me feeling like it was broken and crushed. That I wasn't good enough. That I was worthless.I always wanted to be someone different at that age.He was afriad to stand up to the bullies until he discovered the TV
show, "The Ultimate Fighter". They were big, they were strong. They were Olympic wrestlers
and olympic boxers.at that nominate moment,I found this is how I will learn how to stand up for myself and fight back.
