ONE Championship: 3 Indian Fighters Seek Glory in November

November is set to be a huge month for Indian MMA as Roshan Mainam, Ritu Phogat and Rahul Raju will be representing India at ONE Championship.

Roshan Mainam

Roshan, who signed with Evolve MMA earlier this year, will be fighting first as he makes his ONE Championship debut at ONE: Masters of Fate when he fights Khon Sichan of Cambodia on November 8 in Manila.

The former KOI Combat Academy athlete will be looking to make a statement in his debut and come out with a win.

Ritu Phogat

Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist Ritu Phogat will be making her MMA debut at ONE Championship: Age of Dragons on November 16 in Beijing. Just like Roshan, Ritu had signed with Evolve MMA earlier this year. Ritu will be fighting Cindy Tiong of Malaysia.

It would be interesting to see how much progress Ritu has made at Evolve as it will be her first time inside the cage. Cindy, meanwhile, comes in with a good experience in the amateur circuit.

Rahul Raju

On November 22, Rahul Rahul will be fighting Ahmed Mujtaba of Pakistan at ONE: Edge of Greatness in Singapore. Rahul and Ahmed were scheduled to fight earlier this year but the fight was called off due to the visa issues that Ahmed faced.

The India vs. Pakistan rivalry will indeed be one of the biggest attractions of this fight. Rahul Raju will be looking to build on his win over Richard Corminal while Mujtaba comes into the fight with a loss against Jia Wen Ma back in 2018.
