After a gritty Bellator debut, Brooke Mayo will now be the one welcoming someone to the promotion.
Mayo (0-1 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) meets Kaytlin Neil in a flyweight bout at Bellator 183 (0-2 MMA, 0-0 BMMA), which takes place at SAP Center in San Jose, Calif, a Bellator official on Tuesday told MMAjunkie.
The Sept. 23 card, which features a headliner between former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson and contender Patricky Freire, airs on Spike following prelims streamed on MMAjunkie, though the bout order hasn’t been finalized.
