Anshul Jubli Biography
Anshul Jubli was born on January 13, 1995, in New Delhi, India. He will be 28 years old as of the year 2023. He holds a science bachelor’s degree. A buddy of Anshul’s older brother exposed him to combat sports in 2015.
Anshul started getting ready for the Combined Defence Services Examination after he finished his official studies. He passed the written exam in 2017, but the Service Selection Board (SSB) disqualified him.
Anshul claimed in an interview that he and his companion started viewing videos posted on YouTube by well-known MMA coaches like John Danaher and Firas Zahabi. Anshul Jubli stated that he performed the exercises and methods taught by creators in the videos.
Anshul was unable to pursue formal training in MMA because Dehradun, where his parents had relocated, lacked any reputable MMA training facilities.
While studying for the CDSE, he nonetheless started learning boxing at a gym in Dehradun because he thought that obtaining certifications in a combat sport would improve his chances of being chosen for the Indian Army.
Anshul stated during an interview, “My companion and I discovered the YouTube videos of John Danaher, a highly regarded BJJ- and MMA instructor, and Firas Zahabi while preparing for the CDS. We used to study throughout the day and attempt to repeat the procedures we had learned from the videos at night. My interest in sports was piqued even more by this.”
Anshul later decided against entering the Indian Army after meeting a retired colonel who inspired him to seek a career in mixed martial arts (MMA). Anshul and his companion moved to New Delhi in 2018 to undergo MMA training, and they enrolled themselves in Crosstrain Fight Club (CFC).
There, he received martial arts instruction in Jiu-Jitsu, kickboxing, wrestling, and grappling from National Jiu-Jitsu winner Siddharth Singh. Anshul claimed in an interview that due to his unemployment, he was forced to borrow funds from his friends and share a small room in Delhi with three other individuals.

In 2019, Anshul took part in an MMA competition in the Philippines. After a brawl between the participants broke out in the arena, the professional matchmakers decided to call off the event, forcing him to return to India.
Anshul revealed during an interview that he had to borrow funds from his buddies at the CFC in order to participate in the competition. Anshul considered abandoning MMA because he didn’t have any money and had already loaned a lot of money after the bout was postponed, and the matchmaker not only ignored his calls but also blocked him on social media.
Anshul Jubli competed in The Shillong Cage Fighting title in 2018, but Anshul was unable to compete in the title since his opponent withdrew from the event, resulting in cancellation of the fight.
Anshul Jubli competed in 13 amateur events over the course of his career and never lost any of them.
Once more, I had to borrow money from my close friends, who in turn had borrowed from others, he claimed, adding, “The event appeared to be well-organized. Before the bout, my opponent and I had a terrific face-off in front of the local media.
However, a brawl broke out at the arena as he was warming up, and the match was called off. I was angry about the cancellation. The first thing that came to me was that cash I needed to repay my buddies.
So, I went to the event’s promoter, who made all kinds of excuses for why he couldn’t pay me. If nothing else, I pleaded with him to give me sufficient funds to purchase a flight home. The dubious promoter disappeared.

On June 29, 2019, Anshul took part in his first professional MMA competition at Matrix Fight Night (MFN) 2. Sanjeet Budhwar was the opponent in his debut match.
