By The Numbers: Ritu Phogat vs. Jennifer Olsim

Ritu Phogat and Jennifer Olsim have their marching orders.

The two women will comprise one half of the One Championship atomweight grand prix semifinals when they face each other in the “NextGen” co-main event on Friday at Singapore Indoor Arena in Kallang, Singapore, with the winner moving on to meet either Nong Stamp or Julie Mezabarba in the tournament final.
