ONE’s Bi Nguyen Excited For Return To Her Homeland

Bi Nguyen will look to make a name for herself when she returns home to Vietnam this September at ONE: IMMORTAL TRIUMPH in Muay Thai action.

Bi Nguyen was a rambunctious child who grew up as the youngest in a family of nine, first in Vietnam before immigrating to California.

Now, several years later, Nguyen gets the chance to return to her native home and compete for ONE Championship at ONE: IMMORTAL TRIUMPH in September.

The “Killer Bee” is a product of the famed Jackson-Wink MMA gym in New Mexico. She will take on India’s Puja Tomar in an atomweight Muay Thai bout. Nguyen is 5-4 overall in mixed martial arts including a win this past April over Dwi Ani Retno Wulan at ONE: ROOTS OF HONOR via first round knockout.

Bi Nguyen’s Vietnamese Roots

For Nguyen, competing in combat sports serves as an outlet to help her deal with the loss of her father. Through tragedy, though, she has been able to motivate herself through his passing.
