Who Is Martyn Ford?
Records have it that the British actor and bodybuilder was born in the 82nd year of the 20th century (1982), precisely on the 26th of May. His place of birth was in Minworth, a village in England, United Kingdom.
Since he was a kid, Martyn Ford has been athletically inclined, but his passion was for cricket. From what we gathered, he started playing the bat-and-ball game when he was 12, representing his country and the Warwickshire County Cricket Club. A very competitive individual, Ford gave his all to the sport, always striving to win each game with the hope of becoming a professional cricketer someday. But as you will learn in a moment, fate had other plans for him.
As it happened, Martyn Ford suffered glandular fever and an injury that made it impossible for him to keep chasing his dream of becoming a professional cricketer. He needed to fill the void so he got himself involved in a handful of other sports, from Rowing to Rugby, Football, Judo, and Mui Tai. It was in his early 20s that he discovered his passion for weight training, something he started only with the hope of nurturing muscles that will help improve his performance in sporting activities. Martyn got hooked and has not looked back since then.
He became a bodybuilder, and the kind of body he achieved through weight training paved way for him to get the attention of the movie industry, that’s how he became an actor. Just as his body gained the attention of those that matter in the film industry, it piqued the interest of some big shots in mixed martial arts sports. Now, Martyn Ford is getting set to make his MMA debut.
