Pakistan mixed martial arts (MMA) star Shahzaib Rind arrived back in Quetta Tuesday after finishing India’s Rana Singh at Karate Combat 45 event in Dubai.

The fighter was received by fans and other official upon arriving at the Quetta Airport.

Shahzaib revealed that Singh talked inappropriately against Pakistan on social media and then used inappropriate words in the press conference ahead of the fight.

“After the press conference, when the Indian fighter abused me and pushed me, then I slapped him to bring him to his senses,” he said explaining why he slapped the opponent before the fight.

Shahzaib knocked Singh out instantly after the fight started on April 21 in the ‘Karate Combat’ in Dubai.

After the fight he also met Bollywood superstar Salman Khan.

Shahzaib said Khan had seen few other fights of his. He was over the moon and asked if he knocked everyone out in 20 seconds, he said.

Talking to media in Quetta, after arriving in Pakistan, Shahzaib on Tuesday said his next target was the world title.

He said he participated in all the fighting contests on his own. It was an honour for him to represent Pakistan and he was extremely happy for that, he said.
