Puja Tomar trains at the Soma Fight Club in Indonesia, which she refers to as “home” and which Anshul Jubli uses to get ready for UFC bouts.
Puja acknowledged that competing in the UFC is every MMA fighter’s ambition, but she was adamant that hard effort was the only way to get her talent recognized. After winning her MFN championship defense against Anastasia, Puja struck gold. Ritu Phogat, an MMA fighter, initially told Puja about the UFC deal.
Puja Tomar Signs Contract With UFC Last Month
It is difficult to refute the notion, Puja Tomar argues, particularly for an amateur mixed martial arts fighter. Nobody can better describe the weird emotion that comes with becoming the first girl in your nation to sign a UFC deal than Puja Tomar. The 27-year-old, who has made a name for herself in the Indian MMA scene, said last month that she had signed a deal with the largest company. She is anticipated to make her debut in February or March of the following year.

The Soma Fight Club in Bali, Indonesia, where Puja trains, is also “home” to Anshul Jubli, who uses it to get ready for UFC bouts. She had previously defended the strawweight championship against Anastasia Feofanova of Russia in July, and she was the champion at MFN. A five-time national wushu champion in the past, she began her MMA career with Super Fight League (SFN).
