Jinder Mahal to accompany UFC fighter for upcoming fight

WWE Champion Jinder Mahal will accompany Arjan Singh Bhullar at the UFC 215 event. “When we as a people can genuinely support each other amazing is possible,” Bhullar wrote on Instagram. “I was able to watch The Maharaja do his thing in Vancouver and now I’m excited to announce @wwe Champ @jindermahal will be taking time away from his busy schedule to accompany the Team for my debut fight in his home province of Alberta.” Follow Bhullar online at Instagram.com/p/BXqwKIMlPpY/. [ Thanks to Dot Net Member Ernesto Cruz for passing along the story.]

Powell’s POV: Bhullar will face Luis Henrique at UFC 215 on September 9 in Edmonton, Alberta. The timing works out for Mahal, as WWE has the weekend off from live events before heading out for an overseas tour the following week. I guess WWE has come a long way since Vince McMahon refused to allow C.M. Punk to appear with Chael Sonnen at UFC on FOX 2 back in 2012. Punk later stated that McMahon told him that MMA is barbaric and someone would die.
