Comeback! Ritu Phogat takes first round beating but defeats Meng Bo
How did Phogat survive this?

Bo was battering the Indian in the dying seconds of the first round. The Chinese atomweight decided to interrupt the onslaught to try for an armbar and it could have cost her the fight.
Phogat survived the round and then showed incredible heart to recuperate and retaliate, dominating the last two rounds with her wrestling. It was another big win for the Indian Tigress who books her spot in the semi finals of the atomweight Grand Prix.
Phogat might not weight much more than 100lbs but she certainly has a huge heart. Will it be enough to win the atomweight Grand Prix and book a title shot with atomweight champion Angela Lee?
