Ruthless Rob Lisita shows us the Bulldog choke that submitted Lion Takeshi

Australian born with a proud Romanian heritage “Ruthless” Rob Lisita has made Asia home for the foreseeable future.

Fighting first in Australia under promotions such as CFC and AFC.

Lisita first entered the Asian MMA scene June 2012 with a Legend FC debut and win over tough Korean Yeong Gwang Choi.

Returning to Asia again for a legend fc title fight and then again this time via Singapore, for his submission win over Lion Takeshi.

Listita has now signed to ONE FC where he has penned a 2 year deal and is looking to make an immediate impact as a number 1 contender in the Featherweight division.

“I’m very happy to be signed and fighting in Asia’s biggest and best MMA organisation – One Fighting Championship”

Off the back of 3 big finishes (2 knockouts and a submission win) including a KO win over the UFC toured Nova Uniao 11-1 fighter Rodolfo Marques (who’s only loss was a decision to Bibiano Fernandez) and of course the Bulldog choke submission win over JMMA legend former shooto champion Lion Takeshi.

Rob recently shot a video from his home at Phuket Top Team, showing the rarely seen bulldog choke.

Lista has made it clear to Asian MMA media, he feels he can beat any featherweight in the division. The ONE FC featherweight division being an exciting one that he looks forward to taking on. With recent news that Yasuke Kawanango has signed to ONE FC, Rob has said he would be happy to get the re-match and show where his skills & mental focus are now.

“If its a re-match with Kawanango then great, i get my day… if its someone else then whatever, ill fight anybody in the division”
