SHE IS THE THIRD DAUGHTER OF MAHAVIR SINGH PHOGAT OF “DANGAL” FAME
The third daughter of amateur wrestler and coach Mahavir Singh Phogat, Ritu followed the footsteps of her elder sisters to take up wrestling. The semi-autobiographical film “Dangal”, Starring Aamir Khan, is primarily based on the struggle and success of her parents and her elder sisters, and she only has a cameo as a child, played by Ananya Sharma.
By 2016, Phogat had already won two titles at the National Wrestling Championships and the top prize at the Commonwealth Wrestling Championship in Singapore. In 2017, she continued flourishing on the international stage, winning medals at both the Asian Wrestling Championship and World U-23 Championship.
RITU PHOGAT HAS CARVED A RESPECTABLE CAREER IN MMA SINCE HER LATE 2019 DEBUT
In 2019, Phogat changed tracks to enter the world of MMA. She signed with ONE Championship. CEO Chatri Sityodtong commented on her signing: “Women’s wrestling sensation Ritu Phogat embodies the true values of martial arts and is a great fit for our organization. I would like to personally welcome Ritu to the ONE Championship family.”
Since her November 2019 debut against Nam Hee Kim, the Indian has crafted a respectable career with 7 wins and 3 losses. Her latest fight was a first-round defeat to Tiffany Teo.
