“She’s on the way. I can’t wait to see how she performs. She’s such a, you know, just like Anshul, she’s young, she’s 28 years old. She’s coming into one of the biggest organizations at the right time. She’s coming with great experience.

It was very, very heart-throbbing,”

In her most recent MMA fight, Puja Tomar defeated Russian opponent Anastasia Feofanova in a tough match at MFN 12 in Noida Indoor Stadium to win the strawweight title in Matrix Fight Night’s inaugural all-women main event.

There were four rounds in the exciting main event. Puja Tomar knocked out her opponent in the first round with a left-hand hook to the face. Anastasia used her lengthy legs to keep Puja at bay. Anastasia used her height advantage to put Puja in a hold, but on Saturday, the Champion freed herself and dropped strong kicks that startled the Russian.

As the fight went on, Puja displayed incredible defensive skills and was able to keep Anastasia at a distance despite her long reach. Puja continued to focus on Anastasia’s left knee, wearing out her opponent with strong kicks. Puja scored important points by hitting the Russian in the face with a series of combo strikes.

After a suspenseful four rounds, Anastasia broke her forearm while attempting to block Puja’s powerful strikes, and Puja was awarded the victor via TKO with a corner stoppage.
