LOUISVILLE, KY – In a landmark moment for Indian sports, Puja Tomar, 28, became the first-ever Indian to win a bout at the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) during UFC Louisville 2024 on Sunday. Tomar triumphed over Rayanne Amanda dos Santos.

“I had goosebumps. Inside (the Octagon), there was no pressure, I just thought, ‘I have to win’. I took two or three punches, but I’m OK. I’m going to improve myself and I’m going all the way up,” said Tomar following her historic victory.

Santos used her height advantage and range to dictate the action, but Tomar went kicking and screaming to the final bell, causing damage in the process. When the scorecards were read, Tomar picked up a split decision win (30-27, 27-30, 29-28).
