Indian MMA fighter Ritu Phogat has found her place in the ‘Top 5 MMA Fighters of 2020’ list published by ONE Championship. Ritu, who secured three straight wins in ONE Championship in 2020, has been on a dominant run and will be looking to continue the same into the New Year.
Her first victory of the year came back in ONE: King of the Jungle when she defeated Wu Chiao Chen via a unanimous decision. This was then followed by a win over Nou Srey Pov in October. Ritu then secured her third win of the year when she defeated Jomary Torres at ONE: BIG BANG in December.
Apart from Ritu, Reiner De Ridder who defeated Aung La N Sang to become the ONE Championship Middleweight championship this year has also found a place in the list. New ONE Championship Featherweight Champion Thanh Lee and Denice Zamboanga are also on the list along with ONE Lightweight Champion Christian Lee. Thanh Lee had defeated Martin Nguyen to capture the title when Christian Lee managed to keep his Lightweight title around his waist this year with an impressive win over Iuri Lapicus at ONE: Inside the Matrix.
Interestingly, Ritu Phogat was also named in the Top 5 Breakout Fighters of 2020 list by ONE Championship as well.
