Standing 5’6 and competing at 125lbs, this is Nikolai Gionti.
Nikolai comes to us from Willoughby, Ohio, and represents GriffonRawl Combat Sports & Fitness. Nikolai is undefeated in every aspect of his amateur career, 1-0 kickboxing, 2-0 in boxing, and 6-0 in MMA, where he currently holds the IT Fight Series and Explosive Fight Promotions flyweight title.
Nikolai is also ranked number 1 at flyweight in the state of Ohio by tapology.com. Nikolai had a unique route to martial arts. “I was a journalism major at OU and interviewed fighters. I had always wanted to do it, but never pulled the trigger. I got real close with a fighter, Eric Gifford, and did some BJJ at Relson Gracie Athens and saw I was half way decent so I pursued fighting after graduating”.
Nikolai hopes to make the jump to professional fighter, January 28th in Ohio, for RFO, but nothing is set in stone at the moment. Follow Nikolai on Instagram and keep up on his career at @nikolaigionti
