Undefeated Olympic wrestler, Arjan Bhullar will make his UFC debut next month at UFC 215. When he makes the walk, he will be accompanied by a famous professional wrestler. Bhullar announced on his Instagram that he will be accompanied by WWE champion, Jindar Mahal (real name Yuvraj Dhesi).
Bhullar posted the following on his Instagram:
“When we as a people can genuinely support each other amazing is possible. I was able to watch The Maharaja do his thing in Vancouver and now I’m excited to announce @wwe Champ @jindermahal will be taking time away from his busy schedule to accompany the Team for my debut fight in his home province of Alberta. Shout out to the boss @danawhite for hooking up the VIP treatment”
