Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is steadily becoming popular day by day in Pakistan and a number of new fighters have surfaced in the country.
One of them is Pakistan’s first female MMA athlete Anita Karim. Hailing from Hunza, Anita Karim is a rising MMA star in Pakistan who has shown significant progress by winning two gold medals at last year’s Pakistan Grappling Challenge (PGC).
Now she has secured her first victory at One Warrior series, one of the most celebrated championships in MMA sports. She was pit against Indonesia’s Gita Suharsono.
Anita Karim ‘The Arm Collector’ won by Unanimous Decision in Round 3.
Anita Karim was fighting a larger and more trained MMA fighter. But her passion for the sport couldn’t be stopped by her opponent. She is now going to move up the ladder and will have a chance at the global stage of One Championship.
Anita has fought international opponents before but this is her first major victory at an international event. We hope that she will continue winning and make Pakistan proud.
