Xtreme Akhaada packs a punch as MMA fighters battle it out at ‘WAR’ in Nagpur

Two Nagpur businessmen and a mixed martial art professional have joined hands to form Xtreme Akhaada, which aims at promoting the sport of MMA at a national level while giving players a chance to show their skills and potential. Xtreme Akhaada is a venture by businessmen Rohit Buty and Vishesh Agrawal and mixed martial arts professional Deepak Udair.

Xtreme Akhaada kick started its activities recently as it organized its first MMA event – WAR – Warriors and Ragers. The event saw around 80 MMA players from 15 cities such as ? Mumbai, Kolkata, Pune, Nagpur, Nashik, Bhiwandi, Chandrapur, Gulbarga, Mysore, Wardha, Nalasopara, etc. battle it out in 60 fights. Every fight raised the bar for the event as well as the players. The event, which Xtreme Akhaada plans to take to a national level, was not only extremely well organized but also very successful.

Speaking about Xtreme Akhaada and the activities it plans to conduct, Rohit Buty said: “India is still unexposed to the world of Mixed Martial Arts and we have come to realize the massive untapped potential that our fighters here have to offer. We plan to take our baby ? WAR – Warriors and Ragers – to every city in India before we conquer the globe.

These will be Premier MMA events across India in the coming years. We are overwhelmed by the response we have received and the next step is to take WAR to ? Raipur, Pune, Nashik, Mumbai and Delhi. We already have a lineup prepared for these cities and are just waiting for the pandemic situation to stabilize before we go full steam ahead. By the year end, we intend to start a Fight League in which we shall be creating inter-city teams and auctioning the best players in the country to compete on a platform never seen before.

Speaking as to why Xtreme Akhaada decided to organize an MMA event, Vishesh Agarwal said: “Don’t think about our fight nights as just MMA. Think about it as a 4-5 hour entertainment event, which you enjoy with your friends and family clubbed with multiple high adrenaline acts and programs with the main focus ? LIVE MMA Fights. We don’t want thousands of spectators but what we want is limited, passionate crowd so that we can get our spectators as close to the action as possible.

This is a rich man’s spectator sport and our events cater to such a crowd with full hospitality. Courtesy of our legal team, all our events function smoothly and our company is well protected. Unlike various other MMA Events across India, our business model is a bit different and our investors and sponsors are very happy with our deliverables. We promise you that this year’s Diwali is going to be XTREME.”

Speaking about his love for mixed martial arts, Deepak Udair said: “I have dedicated my entire life to martial arts. I am a Black Belt in Taekwondo (3rd Dan, International Coach and Referee), I have trained in MMA for two years in Japan and I currently teach over 100 students the ‘art’ of MMA. It has always been my dream to give an opportunity and platform to Indian fighters to compete, as MMA is still underappreciated and undervalued in India.

My dream is to train an Indian to become the world champion and through our company and WAR we intend to realize this dream. So far, we have inventory of more than 200 fighters who wish to compete in our events and the numbers keep growing. We ensure that all the competing fighters are medically vetted, insured and certified to compete as well as protected by our team of competent doctors and ambulance on ground to ensure that all participants are safe and not harmed in any way. ?

Nagpur: Married man accused of girlfriend’s rape commits suicide on Facebook live



A 38-year-old married man named Manish alias Raj Yadav, on Sunday, committed suicide during a Facebook live-stream after allegedly being accused of rape by his girlfriend and her family in Nagpur.

During the live stream, Manish, who was married and a father to three children, stated that his 19-year-old girlfriend, Kajal, along with her family members demanded a sum of five lakh rupees and threatened to press charges of rape if he failed to do so.

On September 6, the situation became grave as the woman’s family accused him of eloping after Kajal went missing from her residence.

The deceased refused the claims of having any sexual relationship with the woman and identified her, her family, and a photo studio operator responsible for his condition. He, then, jumped into the river.

After the live video surfaced online, Kalamna Police launched a search operation and recovered the deceased’s body from the river. Four people have been detained in the case for questioning. Further investigation is underway.
