We created a custom arena especially designed for this event and the spectators greatly appreciated our special effects of sound, lights and pyrotechnics. For about 3-4 hours the entire audience was engrossed watching the live MMA fights and enjoying our hospitality. We are happy to have hosted the who’s who of Nagpur at our event as we catered to a very limited crowd by invitation only. We would like to thank our exclusive media partner Nation Next and our ZIM Laboratories, Bluewheel Capital, Monster Energy, Varunam Multispecialty Hospital, Maddtowns Sports & Restrobar and Dewars Highball Soda Water for associating with us and making this event a grand success.”

Speaking about the fighters, Deepak Udair said: “All the competing fighters were professional athletes who have been training for many years and have vast experience. While all the fights were a delight to watch, the fights of Lionel Hupping, Abdul Rahim, Ashish Rawat, Vikas Singh, Shoaib Khan, Sara Noori, Dileep L R and Sutupa Das took the event to extreme! MMA is a dangerous sport and I am delighted to see the plethora of talent that India has. The energy, aggression, spirit and determination of all the fighters was electrifying and all of them gave their everything in every round of the fight. At WAR, we always ensure that all the competing fighters are medically vetted, insured and certified to compete as well as protected by our team of competent doctors. An ambulance is always at the venue to ensure that all participants are safe and not harmed in any way. “
