Welcome to The Fuller Fight Factor LIVE, a semi-periodical show focusing on the world of combat sports, health, fitness and overall awesomeness. In this special edition, host Justin Fuller is joined by Dmitry Gerasimov. Gerasimov is a professional mixed martial arts fighter who currently competes in the featherweight division of Resurrection Fighting Alliance (RFA), which airs its fights on AXS TV.

Originally born in Saint Petersburg, Russia, he has lived in the United States since he was five years old. He was the Minnesota State and Regional taekwondo champion at black belt. He is a student of UFC bantamweight Pedro Munhoz and Strikeforce veteran Marcus Kowal in California. Gerasimov will be fighting Chinzo Machida, older brother to UFC fighter Lyoto Machida, at RFA 15 on June 6 at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Culver City, Calif. This will be the second appearance inside the RFA cage for both fighters. Machida is coming off a “Knockout of the Year” performance by way of flying knee over Brian Wood at RFA 11, and Gerasimov scored a first-round submission over Jordan Isordia at RFA 12.
