Indian wrestling superstar Ritu “The Indian Tigress” Phogat said ahead of the semifinals of the ONE Women's Atomweight World Grand Prix that no one has her wrestling breaks across the atomweight division, and she has now proved her point at ONE: NEXTGEN  also shown.  "The Indian Tigress" Ritu Phogat defeated Janine Olasim of the Philippines by unanimous decision to reach the final in the semi-final event of the world's biggest women's MMA tournament held on 29 October.  In this semi-final match, Ritu Phogat was earlier scheduled to face Japanese wrestler Itsuki Hirata but due to personal reasons she withdrew 4 days before the match and Jenlin Olsim got a chance.

 The semi-finals of the ONE Atomweight Grand Prix came with some punches from both sides early in the match, but moments later, Phogat wrestled Olsim to a takedown.  Initially, the Philippine athlete prevented Ritu Phogat from gaining any lead by applying a body triangle choke, however after some time Phogat's tremendous attack forced her to take a defensive stance.

 The second round also started in the same fashion, but in the meantime the body slam (patki) by Phogat turned out to be a very attractive moment.  The fight was once again on the ground and like the first round, this time also "The Indian Tigress" remained in the top position.
 Before the match, Olsim said he had no problem grappling.  Proving this to some extent, he tried to arm Phogat, but his weak wrestling game had to be defeated in front of the strength of the Indian star.  In the final round, Phogat once again scored a takedown and remained in the top position most of the time, hitting her opponent's head with knee strikes and punches.  The Filipina star tried to make a comeback in the last minutes, but his attempt failed.

 In the end, the three judges ruled in favor of Phogat and will now face Stamp in the final on December 3.  The winner of the final will receive a silver belt and a 2022 title match against ONE Women's Atomweight World Champion Angela Lee.  She will now face the winner of the second semi-final, Stamp Fairtex, who defeated Brazil's Julie Mzabarba by unanimous decision.
