Team India started off their campaign at the IMMAF Asian MMA Championship 2022 on a bittersweet note as the team had one win and one loss on Day 1.

In the Featherweight category for Seniors, India’s Mayur Chandra Prasad went up against Mohammad Javad Kayedgap of Iran. Mayur had some good moments on striking and seemed to be in control for a second when things went to the ground. However, the grappling skills of Javad came into play soon and he was able to lock in Mayur into a guillotine to secure a submission win.

Elsewhere, Ramston Rodrigues secured the first win for Team India at the IMMAF Asian MMA championship when he went up against Lebanon’s Ghady Assaf. Ramston, who had made headlines for training alongside former UFC champion Conor McGregor, secured a decision win in his fight and progressed to the next round.
