Moving on…

Felice Herrig is done focusing on her grudge match with Michele Gutierrez after she dropped out of their fight at Bellator 84 under questionable circumstances.

Now instead Herrig will turn her attention to another old opponent as she faces Patricia Vidonic on Dec 14 in Hammond, IN.

Sources close to the promotion confirmed the new bout to MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday.

Herrig and Vidonic met first at XFC 17 in April this year with Herrig coming away with a unanimous decision victory.

With the chance to exact revenge even on short notice, Vidonic stepped up and will face Herrig next Friday night at Bellator 84.

It’s expected that the women’s fight will still occupy a slot on the main televised card headed to MTV2 with the show headlined by the finals of the heavyweight and lightweight tournaments that night.
