One Championship: Meng Bo warns Ritu Phogat, says the Indian is no match for her
Meng Bo and Ritu Phogat would go head-to-head in the ONE Women’s Atomweight World Grand Prix. However, the Chinese has asserted that she would outfight the Indian inside the octagon.
Ahead of the ONE Women’s Atomweight World Grand Prix, scheduled to get underway at ONE: EMPOWER next month, Indian Mixed Martial Artist Ritu Phogat would be in focus once again, coming off a series of prolific performances. However, she would get things underway against China’s Meng Bo, and the latter seems to be highly confident of outfighting the Indian.
Bo also applauded Phogat recent performances, especially following her loss to Bi Nguyen earlier this year. According to the Chinese, the Indian’s striking repertory has been impressive of late, as she outfought Lin Heqin last month.
“When she lost to Bi, I wasn’t surprised at all. I knew it was going to happen because, at that time, she was only good at wrestling. But, Ritu really impressed me when she defeated Lin Heqin. Though Lin hasn’t fought in over two years, she’s still a great fighter. I could see how well-prepared Ritu was for that fight, and she put in a lot of work on her stand-up game, which showed,” said Bo in a release by ONE Championship.
“She is still far from being a quality MMA fighter. Finishing her will be a piece of cake. It won’t take me long to knock her out. Nothing personal, but she’s not even a worthy challenge for me. Enough talking. My fighting style, my reputation will handle the rest,” she added.
Bo was conspicuous for her high level of confidence against Phogat while she also questioned Phogat’s inclusion in the GP. “If you want to become a fighter that fans respect, you have to push past your limits. I don’t think she has gone that far yet. I don’t think she even deserves her spot in the Grand Prix,” she concluded.
