How many of you can say you've tapped a Gracie? Let alone THE Royce Gracie.

Well Anastasia Yankova can.

Yankova is Bellator's newest flyweight, straight from Russia and already making headlines in the states.

In a video released by Bellator Yankova is seen rolling with the Brazilian jiu jitsu legend in his self titled gym.

She is seen trying arm bars before going for the rear naked choke, which he taps to.

"She knows what's going on," Gracie said.

Yankova is 3-0 in her professional career winning her latest bout with Anjela Pink via first round submission at Bellator 152.
