    Kywan Gracie Behring will finally enter the Bellator cage on Oct. 1 as he makes his promotional debut at Bellator 247 in Milan, Italy, opposite Moldovan welterweight Constantin Gnusariev, officials told MMA Fighting on Tuesday.

    Gnusariev (3-0-1) fought to a draw with Kieran Lister in his promotional debut at Bellator Birmingham in May 2019, bouncing back to the winning column with a decision over Ian Coughlan four months later in Dublin.

    Gracie Behring vs. Gnusariev will take place in the preliminary portion of Bellator 247, which airs live on The card will be headlined by Irish bantamweight James Gallagher vs. Cal Ellenor.
