Indian mixed martial arts icon Ritu Phogat suffered her second defeat in a row after she was forced into submission by Tiffany Teo in their atomweight bout at the ONE 161: Petchmorakot vs. Tawanchai event which took place in Singapore on Thursday.
Her first fight since losing to Stamp Fairtex in the ONE Women’s Atomweight World Grand Prix Final at ONE Championship: Winter Warriors last December, Ritu headed into the fight with an aim to return to winning ways.
Unfortunately, ‘The Indian Tigress’ was locked into a rear naked choke towards the end of the first round itself by Teo, ultimately forcing her to tap at the 4:52 minute mark.
