WATCH: "For me it is a way of life, to connect from my past, as Sikhs, our warrior lineage, its what we are about, its the blood I carry."

"This way of life allows me to connect physically, mentally spiritually to the highest level and fulfils me to no end," shared the one and only champion Arjan Bhullar to DARPAN.

Arjan Bhullar has made history as the first  Indo-Canadian Punjabi Sikh man to win  the Mixed Martial Arts heavy-weight  championship. He dedicated his win to all immigrants who has suffered several barriers and worked hard against prejudice and racism to pave the path for him and his successors.
