The Russian MMA community is known for being one of the toughest and most talented in the world, and you can bet on Anastasia Yankova being the country’s next big star.
Russia has played a massively important role in the history of MMA. Legendary fighters like Fedor Emelianenko and Sergei Kharitonov helped elevate the sport in the mid 2000’s, and a vast number of young up and comers like Khabib Nurmagomedov and Ruslan Magomedov have massive potential to be future champions. There is certainly no shortage of fighting talent in Russia, and one athlete that some predict could soon become a superstar is just beginning to emerge.
Anastasia Yankova has just four professional bouts to her name, yet despite her inexperience, she has is being touted by many as a top fighter to watch in WMMA. Three of Yankova’s wins have come via submission in the first round. In her most recent bout, she made Russian gambling news by earning a split decision win over Veta Arteaga in a tough fight that showed her true grit and toughness.
There’s no denying the fact that good looks are massively beneficial to a woman MMA fighter, and Yankova certainly excels in this category. She is one of the most beautiful women in Mixed Martial Arts, and has the skill set to become a real contender at both 125 and 115 pounds.
Where does Yankova fight now?
As we mentioned before, Anastasia Yankova has only a few professional bouts to her name, and is currently signed to Bellator MMA. She has already had two fights with the promotion, and her next bout has yet to be announced.
With a couple more wins in Bellator, it seems likely that Yankova will move to the UFC, which at the moment has a much deeper roster of women fighters. It remains to be seen what the odds will be to bet on Anastasia Yankova for her next fights. Most online sportsbooks in Russia, including NetBet Spotsbook, listed her as a significant favorite over Arteaga this past September.
With her combination of a strong MMA skill set and looks akin to a super model, you can bet on Anastasia Yankova becoming one of the next big stars in Russia. She is still largely unknown in the American MMA community, but with a couple more fights and a potential move into the UFC, it seems likely we will be seeing much more from this talented athlete.
