Kumite1 League has announced three more fighters of Team India. Earlier, the promotion had announced that Manjit Kolekar and Priyanka Jeet Toshi would represent India.
The third name revealed by the promotion was that of Hayder Hassan. The former UFC star has plenty of experience to showcase on his resume and holds a record of 7-4 to his name. Apart from the UFC, he has fought in Phoenix Fighting Championship, Titan FC and Strikeforce among others.
Hardeep Rai and Yadwinder Singh were the other fighters announced for representing team India. Hardeep, who has a celebrated Amateur career, is currently 2-1 in his professional career. All three of his fights came at Brave Combat Federation. The 22-year-old will be looking to bounce back from his defeat at Brave 12 as well.
Yadwinder Singh, meanwhile, is one of the notable names in Indian MMA. An established wrestler, Yadwinder has already proved his mettle both inside and outside India.
He holds a record of 5-2 to his name and will be a worthy addition to Team India just like Hardeep and Hassan.
Former Brave Combat Federation star Paulo Gonçalves was also announced for Team India. Paulo holds a special relationship with India and spent some quality time in Mumbai. The Brazilian veteran is 22-11 in his career.
