Billy Evangelista Wiki Update Wiki

One of the most underrated lightweight prospects in the world, Billy Evangelista made his MMA debut in 2006 and hasn't looked back, going undefeated (excepting a No Contest ruling against Mike Aina in 2009) in 11 professional fights. In addition to wins over Nam Phan and Luke Caudillo, Evangelista holds a victory over UFC veteran Jorge Gurgel. He is one of the top contenders in Strikeforce's lightweight division.


Although he boasts a well-rounded skill set and a never-say-die attitude, Evangelista has been criticized for not finishing more fights, a trend which is likely to change for the athletic young prospect.
