Indian MMA fighter Sumeet Khade is set to make his MMA return on June 16 at the ACB 88: Brisbane event.
The fighter announced the same through his Facebook and he is set to be the first Indian fighter to compete in the promotion. The event is scheduled to take place at the Chandler Arena in Sleeman Sports Complex and the opponent of Sumeet is yet to be revealed.
“Fight is schedule. I am fighting on 16th june will be the first indian to compete in the third largest promotion ACB in Australia. 6 weeks to go i am training hard with an smarter skills strategies. Lets push yourself at the top. Its time to make a History✌✌✌💪🙏,” Sumeet wrote.
Sumeet, who currently holds a record of 9-2 to his name, is riding on a three-fight winning streak at the moment thanks to his Super Fight League outing earlier this year. He had secured wins over Krishnan Rawat, Pawan Goyal and Vikas Dahiya in the league and the first two victories went on to be viral as well as they were highlight reel worthy stoppages.
The 26-year-old currently trains out of Superhuman Gym and the gym’s association with Jackson Wink MMA Academy could come in handy while Sumeet prepares for his showdown in ACB.
Absolute Championship Berkut (ACB) is one of the leading combat sports promotions in Europe and has held events all over the world as of now. The Russia-based promotion will host its next event in Moscow on May 5th and has one more event lined up in Nottingham, England before they head out to Australia for ACB 88.
Apart from the Sumeet Khade fight, ACB 88 will also have a showdown between Thiago Silva and Chris Camozzi. Luke Barnatt vs. Karol Celinski is another fight that has been announced for the card.
