Marina Mokhnatkina competes in the biggest fight of her career on February 22 when she battles Liana Jojua for the inaugural Fight Nights Global bantamweight title.
Mokhnatkina (4-0) is one of the most highly-touted prospects in the 135-pound division, with many tipping her for eventual superstardom as part of the UFC. The 29-year-old fights out of St. Petersburg, Russia and trains at the Sambo-Piter. She came from a highly-accomplished combat sports background before entering MMA and is a five-time world champion in Sambo.
Since making her professional MMA debut in June 2016, the Russian has remained undefeated, submitting all her opponents with ease inside the very first round.
