In the eighth episode of Indian MMA Origin stories, we talk to Indian MMA star Roshan Mainam who is the man behind RMX MMA Manipur.

For the uninitiated, Indian MMA Origin Stories is an Interview series from LockerRoom India where we try to explore the origin stories of Indian MMA Fight Teams, Gyms, Promotions, and whatnot.

In the episode, Roshan opens up about how the idea for RMX MMA came to him, the secret behind ‘X’ in the name, how fighters from the team have been performing well, why we should watch out for names like Dinesh Naorem, Bishwamitra, Chungren Koren and more, the vision he has for RMX MMA and much more.

Hailing from Manipur, Roshan has had an excellent MMA career so far having fought in the Super Fight League and ONE Championship. He was also selected to the EVOLVE MMA Fight team a few years back through the selection trials which had athletes from all around the world.
