With the Grand Prix final against Stamp coming up at ONE: ‘Winter Warriors’ on December 3rd she doesn’t have a lot of spare time on her hands. But Ritu was still able to take a break to go shopping for a new sari.
Her family is back in India but Ritu is living in Singapore. She made the move in order to pursue her MMA dreams and is just one win away from becoming the ONE Championship atomweight Grand Prix winner.
Her coaches at Evolve MMA will by preparing her for the challenge posed by Stamp Fairtex. It is good to see Ritu taking a break for Diwali but we are sure she will be in shape and ready to go on December 3rd!
