MMA Fighter Arjan Bhullar Turned Down WWE Career After Receiving Advice From Jinder Mahal

Arjan Bhullar became the first Indian-born mixed martial artist to win a UFC fight when he earned a unanimous decision victory during UFC 215. He recently revealed to The Sun  that he turned down a chance at a WWE career after receiving advice from Jinder Mahal.

Arjan Bhullar represented Canada as a freestyle wrestler in the 2012 London Summer Olympic. Shortly afterwards, he said he was faced with a tough decision of choosing between pursuing an MMA career or a WWE career.

"We were in talks after the Olympics with both the UFC and WWE to figure out the next step career wise. The WWE wanted me to come down to the development center in Florida and go through that."

Bhullar said he asked Mahal for advice. He and the former WWE champion are friends in real life, and Mahal was even supposed to corner Bhullar at his UFC fight, but couldn't make it to the event due to Hurricane Irma keeping him from leaving Florida. Bhullar said the grueling schedule  WWE superstars have is the reason he decided to pursue an MMA career instead.
