The drama continues to intensify as the competition in The Apprentice: ONE Championship Edition comes down to the wire.

In this week’s episode, top ONE atomweight contender Ritu “The Indian Tigress” Phogat and reigning ONE Women’s Strawweight World Champion “The Panda” Xiong Jing Nan join the cast, and enter the cage with the candidates, who each find out what it’s like to become a martial artist.

The daughter of wrestling Olympic coach Mahavir Singh Phogat, Commonwealth Wrestling Gold Medalist Ritu Phogat will appear in Episode 7 of the Apprentice ONE Championship Edition. At present she trains at the renowned Evolve MMA in Singapore, where she is practicing mixed martial arts.
