Mokhnatkina (4-0) is one of the most highly-touted prospects in the 135-pound division. The 29-year-old came from a highly-accomplished submission grappling background before entering the sport of MMA. Since making her professional debut in June 2016, she has remained undefeated, submitting all her opponents inside the very first round.
Jojua (5-2) is a 22-year-old from Tbilsi, Georgia. She is currently on a three-fight win streak, all first-round armbar submissions.
Fight Nights Global 83 takes place on February 22 from the SCC Russia in Moscow, Russia. The event will be aired via live internet stream.
