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.

Neil, in turn, makes her promotional debut. The fighter from Utah, who last fought in December of 2016, looks to rebound from a two-fight skid to kick off her professional MMA run.view original article >>
