Mangalorean Kaushik Boloor to represent India in MMA World Championship at Las Vegas

Mangaluru based martial arts virtuoso Kaushik Boloor has been selected to represent India in 2015 IMMAF World Championships of Amateur Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) which will be held at Las Vegas, USA to be held from July 6 to July 11 this year.


Kaushik Boloor is one among a team of six athletes selected to represent Team India. The other members of the team are Kantharaj Shankar, Bhoopendra Kumar, Navin R S, and Shashi Kumar N from Karnataka and Mohammed Sohail from Telangana.

The MMA World Championship is the world’s largest mixed martial arts celebration, guaranteeing high-energy, all-star entertainment and concluding with a weekend of action-packed fights including the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 189 on July 11. Ultimate Fighting Championship is a famous show telecast in Sony Six which is widely popular among the youth.



The All India Mixed Martial Arts Association conducted tryouts at all four corners of the country over a period of 8 months and selected six of India’s top amateur athletes to represent India in the world championship in Las Vegas.

This is the first time India is participating in such a big format of the game, where Indian athletes get to meet top officials and fighters of UFC. The Indian team will be led by Alan “The Bull” Fernandes, Team India’s head coach, who is also the first ever MMA fighter from India to fight internationally.


“I am extremely proud and honoured to represent India and to fight for India for the world championships. I am also extremely happy to represent Mangalore in the biggest fight stage in the world. It won’t be easy as I will be facing the best fighters across the world, but then again nothing is easy in life,” says Kaushik Boloor.

Kaushik Boloor is presently Muay Thai trainer at Ground Sport Fitness in Mangalore.
