Indian Mma Fighter Puja Tomar Makes History With Ufc Win

Muzaffarnagar‘s Puja Tomar achieved a historic feat in the world of mixed martial arts by becoming the first Indian fighter to secure victory in the renowned Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Tomar’s remarkable debut at UFC Louisville saw her facing off against Brazilian fighter Rayanne Amanda dos Santos in a rigorous three-round battle.

Both fighters showcased exceptional skill and determination throughout the bout, with Tomar eventually emerging victorious in a split decision, with the judges scoring the fight 30-27, 27-30, 29-28 in her favor. This landmark victory not only marked Tomar’s first triumph in the UFC but also solidified her position as a trailblazer for Indian female fighters on the global MMA stage.

Hailing from Budhana village in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh, Tomar’s journey to UFC success is a testament to her unwavering dedication and relentless pursuit of excellence in the world of martial arts. With a background as a former national Wushu champion, Tomar has honed her skills in various competitive platforms, including Matrix Fight Night and One Championship, before making her mark in the prestigious UFC.

Training at the renowned Soma Fight Club in Bali, Indonesia, Tomar has tirelessly pushed herself to reach new heights in her MMA career.
