ASB: First, I have to take care of the task at hand. I take care of him, then I might grab the mic and call out the next guy. So I’m going to focus on that. I want to put myself into a position to be top 10 this year. I want to march up towards that title.
Q. You have been called an inspiration by many younger Indian MMA talents. What would you like to tell them?
ASB: Keep training and stick with the wrestling roots we have across the country. That’s the best base, then go find yourself somewhere to strike. We have Olympic medallists in wrestling and boxing, so everything is there. You just need to mix it together and shoot for the stars.
