It takes a lot of courage for women in Pakistan to break free from societal chains and do something that’s different from the stereotypical roles dictated by society. Women in Sports have always found it a challenge to overcome these hurdles. We are so proud of all of our Sports women who continue to let their passion shine by doing their best despite of the lack of resources and encouragement from the masses.

Anita Karim, Pakistan’s first female MMA fighter who hails from Hunza has won multiple national and International bouts and she continues to impress us as she beats her Aussie opponent at the Lumpinee Stadium in Bangkok. The 25-year-old fighter beat her opponent Uyen Ha in all the three rounds of the bantamweight fight.

Anita took to Twitter to announce her win and gave a shoutout to her team Fairtex Fight promotion.

Congratulatory tweets poured in once her win was announced. Scroll down to see.

We are in awe of Anita and all the other women who pave way for young girls in Pakistan to follow their passion and make Pakistan proud.
