Now ahead of her fight against Stamp, Ritu Phogat attended a press conference where she answered serval questions regarding her next fight and preparations. She was asked about Conor rooting for her to which she gave her honest response.
“I was thrilled and extremely elated to be praised by him. It gave me more confidence to show what I am capable of, in the circle. When Conor McGregor gets back after his recovery, he will still be a champion as he has always been and will be!”
Ritu Phogat also talked about opponent Stamp Fairtex. Ritu Phogat has stated that she has worked hard on her striking and she feels that Stamp is not a match for her wrestling skills.
“Stamp is definitely a formidable opponent but she doesn’t have the kind of wrestling experience and background that I have built over the last seven years. I am certain that my superior wrestling background will give me an edge. Also, I’ve been training extensively and pushing through my wins and my losses, and I plan to make 3rd December an extraordinary match in MMA history. My improved striking capability and game plan will be on display for everyone to see inside the circle. I assure you that this match will be the watcher’s delight and a dreamer’s archetype. Hopefully, I will be spoken about as the first Indian woman to breakthrough on the global MMA stage.”
