Christien 'The Tiger' Savoie
Christien “The Tiger” Savoie is a Canadian professional MMA fighter. A native of Saint-John, New Brunswick born in 1992. Christien began his martial arts journey at just 6 years old where he began training Taekwondo. Earning his black belt at 10 years old, 3 years later, he was promoted to his 2nd degree black belt. Shortly thereafter, Christien left Taekwondo to pursue a career in MMA (mixed martial arts).
Christien joined his first MMA gym when he was 15 and instantly fell in love with the sport. At age 19, he had his first amateur MMA fight where he won after just 36 seconds of the first round by knocking out his opponent. Christien laughs as he recalls the victory. He says “I went backstage after the fight and cried my face off. I knew that I would chase that feeling for a long time.”
