TUF Crowd: Wren’s Zen

By Sherdog.com Staff Oct 15, 2009
You asked and we found the answers. “Ask the TUF Crowd” gives you the chance to throw your burning questions to the cast following each episode of “The Ultimate Fighter 10.”

Wednesday’s winner, Justin Wren, gets this week’s nod.

You were portrayed as a quiet, competitive fighter on last night’s episode. What was your secret for not looking like a complainer like (Zak) Jensen and (Matt) Mitrione? –- Bill from Florida

Justin Wren: I think the reason I didn’t come across as a complainer is because I didn’t complain. I was confident in my abilities and whenever I went in there and trained, I trained my butt off and I didn’t complain about it. There was a chiropractor there and I had some injuries with my back, but I just trained as hard as I could, pushed through the pain, then afterwards I’d go to see him. I wasn’t trying, like Matt Mitrione, to go off during practice. If there was ever a time I left practice, it was because my coaches told me to.

I talked a lot on the show. I think I’m a personable guy, but I like to keep myself in check. I would like to come across humble and not arrogant. I’m definitely confident in my abilities, but I don’t want to come across as the guy who thinks he’s better than everyone else because I’m very fortunate to be in the position I am in. I’m the youngest guy there. I’m not going to go in there and put a huge target on my back. I’d rather be the quiet one that goes under the radar and hopefully, I’ll shock some people. That was my mindset going into it.
