The world of mixed martial arts is abuzz with anticipation as Indian MMA fighter Anshul Jubli is all set to make his much-awaited UFC debut at UFC 294. Jubli will step into the Octagon to face the veteran fighter Mike Breeden in what promises to be an exhilarating clash of talents.

Breeden, a 34-year-old veteran, has been striving to secure his first UFC victory, facing some tough challenges in his first three appearances. His previous fights in the UFC saw first-round stoppage losses against the likes of Alexander Hernandez and Terrance McKinney, with a unanimous decision defeat to Natan Levy sandwiched in between.

On the other side, Anshul Jubli, a 28-year-old MMA sensation, remains unbeaten in seven professional fights. His ticket to the UFC was punched by winning the Road to UFC lightweight competition, where he sealed his path with a second-round finish of Jeka Saragih in February.

While Breeden brings an undeniable experience advantage and familiarity with the UFC octagon, Jubli's impressive performance against Saragih highlights his potential as a rising star in the world of MMA. His official debut in Abu Dhabi at UFC 294 is keenly awaited, and fight fans are eager to see what he can bring to the table.

In an interview, Anshul Jubli shared his excitement and determination ahead of the big fight, saying,

"I am excited for my UFC debut bout and will be looking to put in a stellar performance against Mike Breeden, who is a challenging opponent. I have been preparing for this moment all my life and have been tirelessly working towards it. Even now, it seems like a dream. I believe I was built for this and have put in a lot of hours perfecting my craft, but it still feels surreal. I do understand that I am representing India in the UFC and the crucial role I can play in popularizing the sport in our country. I also understand that aspiring combat sports athletes will look to me as a role model."
