Win or lose, I think we will give the fans a fight to remember and talk about. A win for me would be huge. It would open up the Chinese market to an outside of China event.

Mangat said: I’m coming to showcase the most complete version of myself in my motherland. I’ve dreamt of it, now I will show it. I am looking to open people’s eyes and show them that I am the best Indian talent out there. I have been training with some of the best MMA fighters in the world. I am ready. Be ready to witness a statement. “

A prison warden by day, Gill guarantees to bring an exciting fight.
Gill said: “I want India to know that come May 6th I will be going into this fight like an animal hunting its prey. Death is just another state of existence, so I plan to introduce my opponent to it. My game plan is simple; shin meets face and sleepy-sleepy time. After the smoke clears the audience can cheer me as their new favourite fighter.”
Facing up to Gill is South African Quinton Arendse (1 – 1), a jiu-jitsu expert that has been training in MMA for 20 years.
