Gill is from British Columbia, Canada and is of Indian descent. He began the martial arts when he was “14 or 15” years old, when he began practicing Muay Thai.
Mixed martial arts career
Gill was scheduled to compete in K-1 Hero’s 2007 Middleweight Grand Prix, where his fight was going to be a rematch with Caol Uno in the semi-finals on September 17, 2007 with the winner moving on to the finals later that night. However he missed the tournament due to a shoulder injury. Kultar has opened his new gym, in Abbotsford, British Columbia Canada. Open now for a year, Team Mamba is rapidly becoming a force to be reckoned with on both the local and national circuits, with fighters such as Sabah Fadai, Gary Mangat, Kajan Johnson, and Gill calling MambaMMA home. www.mambaMMA.com
Gill’s notable opponents also include Yves Edwards and Hideo Tokoro (twice), the second match being one in which he showed markedly improved submission defense. This is notable given that his background is Muay Thai, a discipline in which he was ranked #6 in the world at one point. His background also includes wrestling, where he was the British Columbia champion as a young man.In a recent interview, he boldly predicted a 1st round KO victory if he were to have a rematch with the highly touted Caol Uno.
Gill’s most recent kickboxing match was a loss to Buakaw Por. Pramuk at K-1 World MAX 2008 Final.
Super Fight League
After nearly four years in retirement, Gill announced that he will be returning to mixed martial arts at Super Fight League 3 against South African kickboxer Quinton Arendse for the Super Fight League in Delhi, India. He was successful in his MMA return, winning via KO in the first round.
The SFL then signed him to a four fight contract.
