Bellator on Thursday announced that it would once again return to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla., on Nov. 9.
Bellator 80 will feature the Season 7 Featherweight Tournament semifinals, as well as a bantamweight bout pitting former featherweight champion Joe Warren against submission specialist Owen Evinger.
Highly regarded female fighter Jessica Aguilar will also make her return to the cage at Bellator 80, although her opponent has yet to be named.
Aguilar has only one black mark on her record since stepping in the Bellator cage, that being to women’s 115-pound champion Zoila Gurgel, whom she lost to via split decision. Aguilar has since won five consecutive bouts, including toppling Megumi Fujii at Bellator 69 in May.
Bellator 80 will air live on MTV2 and in commercial free HD on EPIX, as well in Spanish language on mun2. The preliminary card will stream exclusively on Spike.com.
