Brandon Vera To Defend Heavyweight Title Vs. Arjan Bhullar In May

In the main event of ONE: Dangal, Filipino superstar Brandon “The Truth” Vera defends his ONE Heavyweight World Title against Indian wrestling champion Arjan “Singh” Bhullar. Other Indian athletes scheduled for action include atomweight phenom Ritu “The Indian Tigress” Phogat, Gurdarshan “Saint Lion” Mangat, and Roshan Mainam.

“As a fighter, I think Arjan Bhullar is one of the top athletes in ONE Championship,” Vera said. “He has a great wrestling background. His boxing is amazing. He has a dangerous overhand right. We’ve been training for him, taking notes, and just drilling. He’s very dangerous. He has great head movement, and he doesn’t mind staying in the pocket. If you get too close to him, he’ll grab your leg and take you down, and he’ll ground-and-pound you. I give him the utmost respect.”

Bhullar stated: “I’ve grown so much over the last year, and I think that’s going to be a huge difference in this fight. You have to give Brandon Vera credit. He’s been around for a long time and faced the best of the best in this sport. He’s been the ONE Heavyweight World Champion for many years for a good reason. He’s finished everybody he’s fought, so he’s very dangerous. He’s good everywhere.”
