We're hopeful of grooming this talent further at our UFC GYM Imphal location and helping them reach the international stage and hopefully, the UFC."

Sub-Licensees of UFC GYM Imphal, Rinkhui Shimray, Deepak Singh and Thongam Leo stated, "Manipur has been the epitome in producing world class athletes for our country. However, there is no world class training facility here and that is what we want to provide at UFC GYM to support the current and future talent here. UFC GYM programming is designed to cater to the training styles of every sport as well as for people who are just looking to get fit and that is what's amazing about it."

Ltd, led by Master Licensees Istayak Ansari and Farzad Palia. The Master Licensees have an unprecedented partnership agreement with UFC GYM® to open more than 100 gym locations throughout India through 2032.
