Phogat, who has a strong wrestling background took down her South Korean opponent Nam Hee Kim in under three minutes.
Fighting in the atom weight category, Phogat successfully did a takedown on Kim but the latter managed to fight back and get back on her feet…
… only for Phogat to shoot at her again, this time with more success, as she kept her pinned on the ground and pounded on her face with fists and elbows until the refreee awarded her a TKO win.
The match was over in less than 3 minutes.
Ritu had switched from wrestling to the combat sport earlier in February this year and has been training at Evolve MMA facility in Singapore. According to Yourstory, she is also learning Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Boxing.
