A welterweight division attraction has been added to Bellator 247 as Kywan Gracie Behring faces Costantin Gnusariev.
MMA Fighting first reported the bout.
Behring (1-0-0) made his professional MMA debut last year at Celtic Gladiator Academy 4, defeating Jake Watkins by first round TKO. Behring has no amateur MMA experience, so the fighter’s pro MMA experience is his overall MMA experience. Kywan is the fifth member of the Gracie Family to compete in Bellator MMA, with the others being Royce, Neiman, Robson and Khonry Gracie.
Gnusariev (3-0-1) has won just one of two under the Bellator banner, defeating Ian Coughlan by unanimous decision at Bellator 227. Gnusariev is competing for the first time in nearly a year, as his last bout took place on September of 2019. Gnusariev has competed four times as a professional MMA fighter and three of those bouts went the distance.
Bellator 247 takes place on Thursday, November 1 from the Allianz Cloud in Milan, Italy with Paul Daley and Derek Anderson headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on the CBS Sports Network.
