The way it played aroused interest in me. It not only has wrestling, but also wrestling as well as Muathai and Boxing. But I did not know where its training takes place. "
Got training offer from Singapore
He said, "Singapore's MMA Organization Evolve offered to train me here and I didn't want to miss it. It is the largest MMA training center in Asia. I always wondered why India does not have a world champion in MMA? This was also the main reason for my wrestling joining MMA. I practice for two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon. Apart from this, I give strength coaching of strength conditioning separately. The One Championship is Asia's largest MMA event. I am participating in the Atomweight category. I have not thought about winning the title yet. I have given myself two years for the World Champion's Fight. I just want to fight fight now. So that, I can learn more and more about it. I am seeing MMA in India at a higher level. Wrestling is in my blood. Whether or not I will return to wrestling will tell the future. "
