Ritu Phogat gets new opponent at ONE: ‘Age of Dragons’
In 2016 Phogat won gold at the Commonwealth Wrestling Championship in Singapore in the 48kgs category. She and her sisters were the subject of Dangal, the highest grossing movie in Indian history.
Earlier this year she relocated to Singapore to join Evolve MMA and at ONE: ‘Age of Dragons’ she will be fighting for the first time. Kim (1-0) hails from Korea and made her debut on a Road FC card earlier this year.
The featherweight fight between Ma Jia Wen and Shinechagtga Zoltsetseg is no longer on the card. In total there will be 11 bouts in Beijing with Ilias Ennahachi defending his flyweight kickboxing belt against Wang Wenfeng in the main event.
The co-headliner also features a kickboxing title fight. Tarik Khbabez and Roman Kryklia face off in a bout that will have the inaugural light heavyweight strap on the line.
Local interest is provided by the presence of atomweight Meng Bo who holds a 2013 win over newly crowned UFC bantamweight champion Weili Zhang and strawweight Miao Li Tao who will be looking to score his fourth straight ONE Championship win.
The card also features Yodsaenklai Fairtex who is based permanently in China.
