Matrix Fight Night is set to make its return on Sunday at the Noida indoor stadium in Uttar Pradesh. This event will provide a platform for nine Indian fighters to showcase their potential and talent.

Main Event: Puja Tomar vs. Anastasia Feofanova

In the main event, Puja Tomar, the highest ranked female MMA fighter in India, will defend her strawweight title against Anastasia Feofanova from Russia. This fight will mark the first-ever all-woman main event in the history of Matrix Fight Night.

Change in the Main Event

Originally, the main event was supposed to be a featherweight title bout between Sanjeet Budhwar from India and Mochamed Machaev from Austria. However, Budhwar had to withdraw from the event due to an unspecified illness, resulting in the cancellation of the fight.

Pawan Maan Singh’s Comeback

Pawan Maan Singh, who participated in the ‘Road to UFC’ campaign, will also be competing in this event. Singh’s journey was cut short when he suffered a loss to Jeka Saragih. Now, he is ready to make a comeback and prove his skills in the octagon.
