Ritu Phogat is all set to make her ONE championship return at ONE: King of the Jungle. Ritu, who made her MMA debut against Nam Hee Kim a few months back will be looking to make it 2-0 in her professional career when she fights Wu Chiao Chen of China at the event.

She had secured a TKO win via ground and pound in her debut and now, Ritu wants to step up the game and produce a full-fledged knockout finish.

“I will try to finish the match in the first round like my debut. I would also try to use my striking to the fullest and win this by knockout,” she said via ONE Championship

Known for her wrestling skills, Ritu has been sharpening her striking skills at Evolve MMA in Singapore and she added that her striking has improved a lot thanks to her training.

“I have trained every day and my focus is on the match only. I am working a lot on my striking and I have improved a lot as well. All my Evolve teammates will be here to support me, which is a great advantage,” Ritu Phogat added ahead of her next fight.

Ritu’s opponent Wu Chiao Chen is an established athlete in Kickboxing and Sanda and also has an impressive BJJ resume to showoff. She has a perfect 8-0 record in Amateur circuit and will pose a tough challenge for the Indian wrestling champion.

ONE: King of the Jungle will be headlined by the Atomweight Kickboxing World Championship bout between Stamp Fairtex and Janet Todd. The Strawweight Muay-Thai title fight between Sam-A-Gaiyanghadao and Rocky Ogden will be the main event for the fight card.

The fight card will also feature the return of Amir Khan who will be fighting Kimihiro Eto in a Lightweight contest.
