Manipuri MMA star Jojo Rajkumari has quickly risen through the ranks to become one of the most sought-after MMA talents in the country.

Ever since making her debut at Matrix Fight Night, she has been improving with each passing fight and now with Matrix Fight Night signing a streaming deal with Hotstar, her stardom is only going to rise from here.
Jojo Rajkumari is also eager to make her cage return after a quick KO win over Pinoy opponent Jojo Rajkumari at the Siri Fort Stadium in the co-main event of Matrix Fight Night 9 in June. Prior to this viral knockout win, Jojo Rajkumari was coming off of an amazing submission win over Ishika Thite at MFN 7 which took place in December of 2021.
