A date and location have been set for the
Bellator Fighting Championships’ Season 7 featherweight
Bellator 80 takes place Nov. 9 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel
and Casino in Hollywood, Fla.
Promotion officials announced the news Thursday, also confirming a
previously reported bantamweight headliner between Joe Warren
Evinger. Additionally, highly-regarded female competitor
Aguilar will appear at the event, though “Jag’s” opponent has
yet to be named.
The participants competing in the featherweight semis will be
decided tomorrow night at Bellator 76, when the quarterfinal round
is contested at Caesar’s Windsor Hotel and Casino in Windsor,
Ontario. As is the case with Bellator 80, the evening’s main draw
airs on MTV2, and the preliminary card is streamed live on
Aguilar, 30, has won five straight fights since falling to Zoila
Frausto Gurgel two years ago in Bellator’s inaugural women’s
tournament. The American Top Team representative most recently
earned arguably the biggest win of her six-year pro career this
past May when she outpointed Japanese standout Megumi
Fujii at Bellator 69. The Texan owns half of her 14 career wins
by submission and has never been knocked out.
