Highly regarded 115-pound talent Jessica
Aguilar will return to the cage on March 28, as Bellator 94
emanates from the University of South Florida’s Sun Dome in Tampa,
While Aguilar’s opponent has not yet been announced,
Bellator officials did reveal that the Spike TV-broadcast main
draw will feature the finals of the Season 8 lightweight and
featherweight tournaments. The bracket winners will each earn a
$100,000 payday and a guaranteed title shot.
Four men currently remain in each tournament, with Alexandre
Sandro and Magomedrasul
Khasbulaev making up the featherweight field. Meanwhile,
Awad, Will Brooks,
Rickels and Jason
Fischer comprise the lightweight semifinals. The featherweight
finalists will be decided on Feb 21 at Bellator 90, and the same
will go for the lightweights the following week at Bellator 91.
Aguilar, 30, has won nine of her last 10 fights, with her only loss
in that span coming in a controversial split decision defeat to
Frausto Gurgel in Bellator’s Season 3 tournament semifinals.
Since that setback, “Jag” has posted five straight wins, most
recently taking a unanimous decision from the world-ranked Megumi
Fujii last May at Bellator 69.
