Indian MMA star Puja Tomar is looking at the possibility of running it back with Bi Nguyen. Puja and Nguyen fought a few months back in ONE Championship under Muay-Thai rules with Nguyen taking home a close split decision victory.
In her latest interview with ONE championship, Puja opened up about how she would love to fight Bi Nguyen once again. The Delhi-based fighter also said that it would be an exciting fight for the fans as well.
“When I fought against her before, it was my first time competing in Muay Thai and I didn’t know much about the rules. If the bout is in mixed martial arts, then I would get to showcase my BJJ skills. We both have a great striking and ground game. If the match goes on for three rounds, it would be very competitive and really enjoyable, too,” she said.
She also went on to add that she would be able to correct the mistakes from her last fight if he puts in the effort during training.
“Last time, my preparations were not up to the mark, but still, I was able to put up a good fight. If I train well, I can correct the mistakes I made in my previous match. As I said, Muay Thai was new territory for me altogether. If I get a chance [for a rematch] in mixed martial arts, I will prove that I am a good athlete.” The Indian MMA star added.
Puja’s last fight in ONE championship came against Stamp Fairtex under and the Indian would be eager to bounce back from the defeat she suffered against Stamp. Nguyen, on the other hand, is also sitting on top of a defeat against Stamp Fairtex which makes sense to put Puja and Nguyen together in the ring once again.
