Chaitanya Gavali: 101 Fight Club Ep 1

Chaitanya 'Dangerous' Gavali, 26, is India's World Championship winning MMA Fighter, from Kandivali, Mumbai. Having represented India in several international Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) tournaments, he is known (and feared) across Asia as one of India's fiercest fighters. Funnily enough, he began his journey just to lose some weight, eventually coming to realise that fighting is what he was born to do. Chaitanya comes from humble beginnings, with his family running a shop selling shoes. 

Today, he is one of the leading members of Team Relentless, led by coach Jitendra 'Vicky' Khare. With a lack of funds and awareness about the sport, Chaitanya is literally fighting to continue doing what he loves.
