UFC heavyweight Arjan Bhullar is confident he will be able to wear a turban for his next fight – after he was unable to in his debut bout and it might even have a Reebok logo on it.
Bhullar made his UFC debut last September at UFC 215, beating Luis Henrique via unanimous decision to stretch his unbeaten run to seven fights.
That win was overshadowed by the fact the Sikh MMA ace was not allowed to wear the religious turban for his ring walk.
Fighters must wear sponsored clothing but Bhullar, and Reebok had not agreed upon a personalized turban.
Arjan Bhullar told reporters backstage at UFC 220′ event, that he’s been cleared by the promotion to wear the headwear for a fight against Adam Wieczorek at UFC on FOX 29, which takes place April 14 at a location yet to be announced.
“As of right now, that is the plan, and we’ve got the green light for that,” Bhullar said. (via MMAJunkie)“It’s going to be a very special moment for all Indians.”
He was allowed to wear a religious turban for the Olympics and admits it had a huge effect on Indians worldwide.
“I’m sure once we get our ducks in a row, it would be something to celebrate and push,” Bhullar said.
