Bullied schoolboy to receive MMA lessons from experts after heartbreaking video goes viral

Quaden Bayles, the Australian schoolboy with Achondroplasia dwarfism, whose heartbreaking video of him crying after being relentlessly bullied is reportedly open to receiving MMA lessons after experts offered to teach him.

The nine-year-old who has received an overwhelming level of support from celebrities and even led out an all-star rugby team was reportedly contacted by Chatri Sityodtong the founder and chairman of ONE Championship, the biggest MMA company in Asia and the largest sports media property on the continent.

The company posted a message from Sityodtong on Twitter, where he offered free MMA lessons to the youngster as well as an all-expenses trip to Singapore.

According to Bayles's mother, her son is open to offering presented to him by Sityodtong.

The 49-year-old founder of ONE Championship is quoted by TMZ as saying:

I just spoke to his amazing mom, Yarraka, over the phone. She has graciously accepted my invitation to come to Singapore for an all-expenses-paid vacation so Quaden can learn martial arts at EVOLVE.

Our instructors will be sure to bully-proof Quaden. If he wakes up from his nap, we plan to FaceTime tonight. Yarraka said that he might sleep through the night. If so, we will FaceTime tomorrow. Let us all take the opportunity to show little Quaden how much the world cares. 

Sityodtong also confirmed on Twitter that he had spoken to Quaden's mother.

The amazing response to Quaden's video has seen a GoFundMe campaign raise more than $400,000 for Bayles family for a trip to Disneyland.
