Bashir Ahmed, widely regarded as the pioneer of MMA in Pakistan, has urged fighting fans to flock to Wapda Sports Complex and support the country's talent as it takes on foreign opponents.

"We invite everyone to come and support us. There is no entry fee, and it's on a Saturday. What more could anyone want?" said Ahmed.
