Martial artist by day, pie baker by night
Wednesday, November 20, 2019
Ben Neumann is a unique combination of professional baker and professional mixed martial artist (MMA). As his website intro declares, "put the two together and you have possibly the most intimidating moniker in the fight game: 'Ben The Baker Neumann.'" Not.
The White Bear baker is kidding, of course. He enters the MMA fight cage wearing his baker's hat and carrying a rolling pin. "Other guys call themselves the 'Axe Murderer' or something crazy. I'm the baker; not intimidating at all," Neumann joked. Not that names matter. The unintimidating baker is among Minnesota's top 10 MMA fighters.
