Just one glimpse at FB-forums related to UFC will give you an understanding of the craze for the sport in our country.

India is one country which never had any representation in this global sport. This stats is all set to change thanks to India’s first ever MMA fighter – Arjan Singh Bhullar – who will be soon in the famed octagon on November 25th in Shanghai.

Arjan has been signed by the Ultimate Fighting Championship promotion this week making him the first-ever Indian born fighter to step in the dreaded MMA ring. Bhullar already has many achievements to his name including winning a gold medal at Delhi Commonwealth Games in 2010. He had also participated in the 2012 London Olympics from Canada.
