Ritu Phogat hopes to be a part of the ONE Atomweight Grand Prix in 2021

2020 was a successful year for Ritu Phogat. The Indian MMA star secured three back-to-back wins in ONE Championship and also found a place in the ‘Top 5 MMA fighters of 2020’ list published by ONE Championship.

With the New Year, Ritu has new goals in front of her. While talking to ONE Championship, she revealed that getting into the ONE Atomweight Grand Prix is her New Year’s Resolution for 2021.

“My goal for 2021 is to be part of the ONE Atomweight World Grand Prix. When [the matchmakers] announce the eight names for the tournament, I hope my name is among them,” Ritu Phogat noted.

Ritu also went on to add that she will be looking to remain unbeaten and active in the coming year.

“My coach and I are working hard every day, and I am steadily improving my skills. I’ll be taking part in every match to remain undefeated, and I wish that my [perfect] record is never broken,” she added.

The ONE Atomweight Grand Prix was announced back in October by Chatri Sityodtong and the winner is expected to get a shot at ONE Atomweight World Champion Angela Lee.
