Hisaki Kato has quickly become one of Bellator’s go-to fighters, as the Japanese fighter has produced some pretty memorable finishes, since he arrived in 2015.
Kato made his promotional debut against noted kickboxer, Joe Schilling, and put the latter away with a pounding, Superman punch (Kato also took out Schilling in a Bellator kickboxing bout as well). Since then, Kato has scored two more stoppages and he was also KO’d by Melvin Manhoef.
The striker is set to take on vaunted grappler Ralek Gracie at Bellator 170, January 21st. In advance of the bout, Bellator has posted the highlights below, featuring Kato.
