According to Wrestlinginc.com, Mahal will accompany UFC fighter Arjan Bhullar to the octagon for Bhullar’s upcoming fight at “UFC 215”. Bhullar is a heavyweight who will be making his UFC debut at the show. He is the first UFC fighter of Indian descent and, like Mahal, was born in Canada.
Here’s the two of them in a workout together:
Opinion: This is something that’s always at least kind of cool to see as it make the WWE look like a bigger deal. Mahal isn’t exactly an a-list star but he’s starting to become more well known, which is at least going to boost his status a bit. While I think he’s losing the title at “Summerslam 2017”, it’s nice that he’s getting something like this.
