Talented Russian lightweight prospect Alexander “Tiger” Sarnavskiy has signed with Bellator. The 23 year old fighter has a 20-0 record coming into the lightweight tournament. Bellator announced the move earlier today.
Sarnavskiy is a student of Bellator’s middleweight title contender Alexander Shlemenko. Sarnavsky possesses dangerous striking that draws from his teacher’s spinning attacks and always looks to finish the fight, something he has done in 17 out of 20 fights. While the Russian fighter prefers the striking game, he has finished 11 fights via submission.
Sarnavskiy will likely debut in the fall and is excited to make his Bellator debut, stating:
“The Bellator Tournament will be a difficult test for me,” Sarnavskiy said. “I will train and prepare myself the best I can. I have a huge responsibility to my coach, my manager, my fans and my country. I won’t disappoint them and I want to show them a spectacular performance.”
