Kolkata, December 22: UP Yoddha edged out U Mumba 32-31 in an exciting match of the Vivo Pro Kabaddi Season 6 on Saturday.

Prashanth Kumar Rai (8 points) with a two-point raid in the last minute clinched the win for UP Yoddha. It was a disappointing night for U Mumba as Siddharth Desai and Rohit Rana both suffered injuries.
