The new fighter that is now signed with Bellator is a big friend of ours, Justine Kish a seven-time UFC competitor who just signed a multi-fight deal with Bellator MMA. If you do not know who Justine is, Svetlana Nasibulina, known by her ring name Justine Kish is an American-Russian MMA professional fighter that competes in the Flyweight division of Bellator MMA. She is a professional since 2010, she has fought in the UFC before and is now signed to Bellator for a new opportunity and more fights. Kish has a record of 7-4 and has fought some great fighters before like Nina Nunes, Tracy Cortez, Sabina Mazo, and more. Kish has fought Muay Thai for 10 years and she has also won 18 matches and a World Muaythai Council championship belt during that period of time.
Justine Kish is part of the Cyborg Nation family and is a huge part of Cris Cyborg’s camp since she has been helping Cris in her last couple of camps and last fights training. Justine is a great fighter and has huge experience with Muay Thai since she had so many fights before. This opportunity should be really good for Kish since she has not fought since the beginning of 2021 and lost against Tracy Cortez by split decision. That was Justine’s last fight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
Justine’s last fight was this past weekend on February 19th against DeAnna Bennet. The fight was one by Bennet by decision since the fight was really close. Since they both have a unique style of fighting the fight was very fun to watch! Justine landed some really good punches, kicks, knees, and elbows in this fight as well as Bennet too who did a great job in taking Kish down with her good wrestling and Jiu-Jitsu, however, she was not able to submit or pass Justine’s guard at any point during the match which is a huge advantage for Justine since she is a blue belt and DeAnna Bennet is a brown belt in Jiu-Jitsu and has also better wrestling than Kish. And Kish did a great job with her kicks ad striking during the fight.
