While conversing with the media after the battle, Irfan said
Gurung is all the more a striker and I needed to have more strikes from him. It would have been beneficial for me, for my experience, yet then I needed to take advantage of the lucky break when I saw that I can end the battle with accommodation. I was not anxious by any stretch of the imagination. I simply needed the battle to finish as fast as could be allowed.
The Shaheen Team Captain stated, “I need to devote this success to everybody who has upheld me all through, my colleagues.”
Irfan said that to seek after a vocation in MMA, he moved from Chiniot to Lahore, where he met Bashir Ahmad, the adoptive parent of Pakistani MMA, who took him under his tutelage and got him into his Shaheen Academy.
Irfan stated, “I need to commit this to Shaheen kids as well, who were watching the battle back home. The success goes out for everybody in Pakistan.”
