Arjan Bhullar became the first Indian origin fighter to win a major Mixed Martial Art (MMA) title when he clinched the ONE Championship Heavyweight title a couple of weeks back. The 35-year-old defeated five-time champion, Brendon Vera, by a Technical Knock Out (TKO) to be crowned champion.

Besides, Arjan also holds the record of being the first-ever Indian origin fighter to win a bout at the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and has also represented Canada at the 2012 London Olympics in the sport of wrestling.

Though he is a Canadian citizen, Arjan has become a star in India after his ONE Championship title win, due to his Indian origin.

The Heavyweight World Champion recently shared a video of his father fighting in a traditional Dangal through this twitter account.

Arjan captioned the video, "When your childhood is spent watching your dad train and compete and live right you get hard-wired to do the same. We've been winning #Dangals for a little bit now."

In the video, the senior Bhullar can be seen walking back after winning about at a Dangal.
