He’s graced the ring in the aforementioned Glory and Bellator Kickboxing, as well as K-1.

The new signings come fresh off the release of Karate Combat The Movie which the promotion released on the 17th. Going into season 4 in 2022, Karate Combat looks to push new boundaries and change how combat sports are viewed.

Karate Combat looks to grow even further before their season 4 debut and with signings like Gabriel Varga and Dastonbek Otabolaev, they are well on their way. More signings are assuredly inbound to Karate Combat’a already deep roster to make the next season even bigger!
