After their first event, the promotion is also kick-starting its grappling division by organising a two-day Brazilian Jiu Jiutsu event on April 29th & 30th.
This will be one of the biggest grappling events in India in the post-poandemic era when many of the promotions are still struggling to hold their events in the country.
Sources close to the promotion have confirmed to TFG that if their initial events are well received they will be well on track to implement a regular schedule of grappling, striking and MMA events, including talent hunts, that will focus on developing the next generation of combat sports talent in India by providing a platform where they can frequently compete.
