Actor and bodybuilder Martyn Ford isn’t your average dude in any way, shape, or form. He stands at 6’8″ and weighs in at 320 pounds, according to his IMDB bio, and he’s appeared alongside veteran actors like Scott Adkins and Dave Bautista in action films. Now, he’s taking a foray into combat sports

Ford recently posted on Instagram to announce his signing with Konfrontacja Sztuk Walki (KSW), an MMA organization in Poland.


He’s already overhauled his training routine to get ready for his debut, and he’s set to hit the cage in early 2019, according to KSW’s press release. Ford has been sharing some training updates on Instagram, and we definitely wouldn’t want to be stuck in an MMA cage with him. 


Ford seems confident in his training and is excited to take on a new athletic endeavor (we can’t imagine his potential opponents are all too thrilled about it). In another post, he shared his rationale behind trying his hand at MMA. 

“Time after time I have over come obstacles in life, it’s time to do it again, and I can’t wait,” he wrote. “Let’s be honest, we all want to win, be successful and the best. But it’s what you are willing to do, how hard your willing to work and how far you can push yourself mentally and physically that counts. Why am I doing this ??? Because I want to set an example to my daughters that in life, the only limits we have are limits we set ourselves.”
