China recruits MMA fighters to train soldiers to fight India - China

Tensions between two powerful nuclear neighbours China and India are extremely volatile at the moment.

At least 20 Indian soldiers were killed in a recent scuffle with the Chinese Army on 15th June. The clashes took place at the Galwan valley, which is located in the western Himalayas in the Ladakh region.

India vs China

The recent clashes were the deadliest in over four decades. China and India are fighting over a border dispute and both sides claim vast swathes of each other’s territory. The disputes are a result of demarcation lines made by the Britishers when they were the colonial rulers of India.

China hires MMA fighters

While India suffered the loss of 20 soldiers, the Chinese side never released the casualty on their side. However, according to military sources, at least 45 to 50 personnel of the People’s Liberation Army were killed in the clashes. As per reports, 3 Medium Regiment of Indian Army had captured a Chinese colonel during the clashes and later released him.

This may be the reason behind China recruiting MMA fighters to help train it’s troops along the Indo-China border in hand to hand combat.

According to a report by SCMP, 20 MMA fighters from the Enbo Fight Club were recruited for their border militia. The club is from Sichuan province in the country’s southwest and would form the Plateau Resistance Tibetan Mastiffs to be based in Lhasa, Tibet.

If the country needs us, the Enbo Fight Club will wholeheartedly complete more challenging tasks. As for whether [our fighters] took part in the conflict a few days ago, don’t ask me, I didn’t ask,” club owner En Bo was quoted as saying to Chinese state broadcaster CCTV. (H/T – SCMP.com)
