Arjan Bhullar has said he’s moved past his last performance, and intends on washing away those memories with an outstanding performance on tonight at UFC Fight Night 138.
Bhullar (7-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC), who meets Marcelo Golm (6-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) in a heavyweight bout tonight, succumbed to just the second omoplata submission in UFC history when he lost to Adam Wieczorek at UFC on FOX 29 in April. No one wants such a dubious spot in the record books, but Bhullar said he didn’t take the nature of the outcome personally.
“I ended up getting caught, definitely,” Bhullar told MMAjunkie. “But obviously there’s a process involved after a loss. I’ve had losses in wrestling, so I was familiar with that. Very disappointing. It was a fight I was dominating, but that’s why it’s so exciting. You get caught, digested it, learned from it as a team and threw it away and gotten better because of it.”
Bhullar has been itching to get back in the ring ever since his defeat, but he has had to learn what he has planned and what the UFC have planned are two very different things.
“I wanted to get back right in there, right after that fight, as soon as we could,” Bhullar said. “We were healthy. I was in shape – let’s just go again. That’s the process I’m used to, but it wasn’t to be. Obviously there’s cards, and there’s a business angle or promotion. That’s been the frustrating part, but take the emotion out of it, learn what you have to and move forward. That’s what we’ve done. I’m actually very excited to showcase what we’ve been working on. We really focused in on different aspects of my game and taken everything to the next level.”
It is a massive Good luck shout to Arjan Singh Bhullar from everyone at Daily Ent. Xpress, we will be posting details of how to watch the fight later on tonight!
