Anastasia Yankova was born on March 1st, 1991 in Moscow, Russia. She is a Russian Muay Thai champion with a professional Muay Thai record of 9-2. In 2013 she made the transition to MMA and won her first fight via submission. After winning a second fight, she moved on to Bellator in April 2016. She has won both of her appearances inside the Bellator cage. With a MMA record of 4-0 this 25 year-old will surely continue to make headlines in the years to come.
This week it was announced that she will return to action on April 8th in Turin, Italy against Elina Kallionidou at Bellator 176.
With a varied striking arsenal based in Muay Thai and boxing, Yankova has a wealth of experience in combat sports. One of the reasons she decided to sign with Bellator is that the company will allow Yankova to take occasional fights in Russia and compete in other combat sports. She currently trains at AKA.
Another aspect in which Yankova is a star is in social media. As you can see in the photo above this Russian beauty is as deadly with her gloves as with her cell phone. On the next pages you will see why she might be the hottest female MMA fighter ever.
