The MMA India Show had the opportunity to chat with Aditya P.S, who is the founder of AIMMAF and is also accompanying Indian fighters to Amsterdam.
“I expect Team India to be there in top 10 ranking with atleast 3 Gold Medals. We have a strong contigent of fighters who have proved themselves in Nationals and then again in Open Championship. This time we have Crème de la crème of fighters from all over the country representing India. With two Golds from last Asian Championship, our confidence has skyrocketed and we hope to keep the momentum going,” Aditya said.
