The ‘high voltage’ contest between Ritu Phogat and Wu Chaio Chen lasted for all the three rounds as Ritu went on to dominate her opponent. Wu Chiao Chen boasted of an undefeated amateur MMA record of 8-0 and has been a former JJIF Asian Jiu-Jitsu Championship gold medallist. However, that did not help her to overpower Ritu Phogat on Friday night.

Ritu Phogat managed to dictate each of the three rounds and took down her opponent in the very initial moment. Though, Wu tried her best to challenge Ritu in the second round of the fight. But, Ritu Phogat’s grappling exchanges proved to be too strong for the Chinese fighter. In the final round, Ritu unloaded an all-out assault over Wu and damaged her with some vicious blows. After a three-round battle, Ritu Phogat was awarded the victory via unanimous decision.
