She is the third daughter of the legendary former wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat. Her sisters Geeta Phogat and Babita Kumari need no introduction as not only are they India’s finest female wrestler, they also have a Bollywood biopic made on them called ‘Dangal’ with Amir Khan as the lead actor. It was one of highest-grossing Bollywood films of all time.

The main event will be headlined by Ilias Ennahachi who will defend his ONE Flyweight Kickboxing World Championship against Chinese sensation Wang Wenfeng.

How do you guys think will Ritu Phogat’s MMA debut go?
