Ltd and Ratul Mukherjee, President of BOOM MMA IPFL.

It will also feature the return of Ishan Das who has been in the news lately. Ishan will be fighting Suleiman in a Flyweight contest.

During the press conference, Mr Bhutia mentioned, “We want to give an alternate career to those fitness and martial artists that might not fare very well in other aspects of life. There are so many examples where Indian youths go ashtray in order to show their strength and skills through wrong & illegal ways. Nature has built human to always compete and if this is not fulfilled, the youth tends to take out their extra energy or frustration in unacceptable ways, and risk breaking the law. We want to highlight the auction of franchise fighters and bidding by team owners like IPL so that we get more people interested and informed and excited to own a team or bring their fighters and become champion and get Rs 50,000 Winning Amount..”

The BOOM MMA Chief Ratul Mukherjee has said in the press conference that this event is going to change the MMA scene in Eastern India.

“This event is one of the most precious events because this event is testing their mettle after multiple rejections this is event is going to take place in a short notice (7 days). This kind of operation is making us handy and making us stronger. He also stated that this is the major promotion which not only controls the entire fight business of Kolkata but it's giving a strong message throughout Eastern India terms of its rapid expansion and control,” he noted.

For those who might not yet be aware, BOOM MMA Indian Premier Fighting League is an ambitious flagship project of TCC Pvt. Ltd, and the brainchild of Nuur Muhammad Bhutia, who is himself a professional MMA/BJJ coach. Starting back in 2013, the MMA promotion has come a long way down the road and now witnesses the participation of overseas fighters as well, from countries like Afghanistan and Bangladesh in different weight categories.
