Comes From An Educated Family

The BKFC fighter was born on August 17, 1984, in Vicksburg, Mississippi, USA. He grew up with his two brothers in a city without much of a pedigree in MMA sport. In fact, there were only a handful of gyms that could provide good training to produce high-level amateur fighters back then.

What's more, Brown doesn't come from an athletic family instead, his parents prioritized education. Martin Trey Brown's father, Ben Brown, was a computer systems analyst and his mother, Grace Brown, is a retired educator. They both have masters degrees and wanted him to go to school. Brown's both brothers being enrolled in a college didn't help the case either.

But, the young guy was determined to make a career out of fighting. He aspired to become a world champion which he did a few years later. The Vicksburg native started his amateur career in his hometown before moving to Tampa to set up his training. Fast forward over a decade later, he reached the top of his game and is continuing to do so till today.

His Journey To The Top Was Filled With Obstacles

Let's face it, a guy from a small town moving to a big city to achieve his dreams might sound fascinating, but it's not without its cons. Not only is that person all on his own, but he also has to struggle, be it financially or for other reasons. When Martin first moved to Tampa, he was able to make a living from fights but couldn't earn much to spend lavishly.

The fighter slept in his car and gym, while also getting knowledge about the business side of the game. He wasn't aware that he could earn money from sponsors, private lessons, and seminars in his downtime. The then-newbie had to learn all on his own. In the ring, his career was progressing with both wins and losses.
