Bellator 91 Lineup Complete; Bantamweights Ed West, Josh Montoya Added to Main Card



The fight card for Bellator 91 is now complete, promotion officials announced Monday.

The event takes place at Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, N.M., and is headlined by a light heavyweight title matchup between Christian M’Pumbu and Attila Vegh. As previously reported, a pair of lightweight tournament semifinal bouts will also occupy the main card, as Will Brooks locks horns with Saad Awad, while David Rickels squares off with Jason Fischer.

Also official for the main card, which airs live on Spike TV, is a 135-pound clash between six-time Bellator veteran Ed West and Santa Fe, N.M., native Josh Montoya. The evening’s six-bout undercard will stream live on Spike.com and features the MMA return of world champion boxer Holly Holm, who takes on Katie Merrill at bantamweight.

West last appeared in the Bellator cage in April 2012, dropping a unanimous decision to Marcos Galvao at Bellator 65. The Apex MMA representative has lost three of his last five bouts, including a five-round defeat to then-bantamweight champion Zach Makovsky at Bellator 32.

Montoya has competed primarily for the King of the Cage promotion during a 17-fight pro career. The 23-year-old carries a two-fight winning streak into his meeting with West, most recently earning a second-round stoppage of Frank Morris in August.
