Status: Former ONE Athlete
South Pacific Featherweight Champion Rob “Ruthless” Lisita started his mixed martial arts career in impressive fashion. After quickly establishing himself as one of the top fighters in Australia’s lightweight division, he even challenged for a lightweight championship in his tenth bout as a professional.
After dropping a division to featherweight, Lisita soon earned himself a shot at yet another championship title by putting together a string of impressive victories. However, he ultimately dropped a tough decision loss to Japan’s Yusuke Kawanago. The two would later rematch under the ONE Championship banner, with Lisita winning by way of devastating first-round knockout.
Lisita has won almost all of his many victories via stoppage, which is a testament to the unique brand of aggression and dynamism that he brings into the cage. Now that he has moved up to ONE Championship’s lightweight division, he believes he will be even more explosive, and looks to make a run at the ultimate prize in martial arts – the ONE Lightweight World Championship.
