Anshul Jubli, the rising Indian mixed martial arts superstar will be back in action in the much-awaited The Road to UFC final, taking on Indonesian fighter Jeka Saragih, this 4th of February as part of the UFC Vegas 68 event in Las Vegas.
Anshul qualified for the summit clash after a hard-fought split decision (29–28, 28–29, 29–28) victory over Kyeong Pyo Kim in the semifinals back in October last year. Saragih, on the other hand, earned his way into the final courtesy of a brutal spinning back fist knockout of Won Bin Ki.
The final of the Road to UFC event, making its return after seven years, was originally slated to take place in Seoul, South Korea, but the venue was later changed to the renowned UFC Apex.
“King of Lions” is undefeated as a professional with six victories, with five of his earlier triumphs taking place during his brilliant run in the Matrix Fight Night promotion. He’s now on the verge of becoming the second Indian-born fighter after Bharat Khandare to earn a UFC contract.
The Road to UFC final will feature four weight classes. Aside from the Anshul vs. Jeka in the Lightweight final, Seung Guk Choi and Hyun Sung Park will fight in the Flyweight final, the Bantamweight summit clash will feature Toshiomi Kazama against Rinya Nakamura, while the Featherweight final will see Yi Zha taking on Lee Jeong Yeong.
