Nagaland’s Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter Lanumongla Jamir bagged bronze medal at the 4th Bengaluru MMA Open Championship 2018 held from July 12 - 15. Lanumongla is a member of All Contact-Combat Arts Club.
Alan Fernandez, India’s first world champion and chief commissioner of All India Mixed Martial Arts Association (AIMMAA) commented, “You (Nagaland fighters) have it in your blood. You just need to let the fighters understand more about the theory of the discipline.”
Welterweight champion from Iran also commented, “I would have loved to fight with Keyisuiding of Nagaland. He had the best kicking moves.” In a setback, Keyisuiding Lungalang’s fight was stopped due to injury.
The fighters from All Contact-Combat Arts Club were Lanumongla Jamir (Straw weight), Bharat Kumar (Fly weight) and Keyisuiding Lungalang (Welterweight). The team was led by Vire Nukhu as team coach and Vechita Khesoh as team manager.
