K.B. Bhullar is one of the surging Canadian prospects that is making noise on the regional scene. On Friday, the 27-year-old has a chance to stay undefeated and become the Unified MMA middleweight champion when he takes on four-time UFC competitor Matt Dwyer.
Bhullar is excited that he gets to take on a UFC veteran in his just eighth professional fight.
“It is a honor to fight a guy like Matt Dwyer,” Bhullar said to Sherdog.com. “He is an accomplished veteran of the game and has gotten multiple championships and multiple different weight classes. He is a very tough challenge and I can’t wait to do what I do.”
Although “The Bengal” is 7-0 as a pro he knows this fight is a difficult test and could possibly put him on the UFC radar. For now, he is focused on winning the Unified MMA title.
“My sole focus is dedicated right now to winning the Unified title. I don’t know what it will do for me, but I know what it will mean for me,” he said. “This title has been my goal for awhile. I have wanted to fight for a national title and now I have that opportunity. All the work the last 14 years of martial arts, that what this belt is.”
Bhullar remains adamant he isn’t looking past Dwyer and possibly being in the UFC or on the Contender Series next summer.
“Absolutely, he is my toughest fight to date. But, as I said, I don’t focus on the Contender Series, until the UFC approaches me and offers me it, then I will think about it, but it is not in front of me right now, so I am not focused on it,” he said.
