UPDATE – Bellator to now air Aguilar vs Ellis on MTV2

Posted: November 15, 2011 in Uncategorized

Bellator Fighting Championships 58 takes place on November 19th at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida and features a matchup between 3rd ranked, Lisa Ellis and 2nd ranked, Jessica “Jag” Aguilar.

Both Ellis and Aguilar competed in last years Bellator 115-pound Tournament. Ellis (14-6) defeated Aisling Daly via unanimous decision in the quarter-finals and then lost to Megumi Fujii in the semi’s. She has not competed since. Aguilar (11-4) also won her quarter-final bout, defeating Lynn Alvarez via arm triangle choke in the first round. In the semi-finals, she would lose a very contentious split decision to eventual champion, Zoila Gurgel. Since that loss, she has won both of her fights, defeating Elsie Henri via first round armbar and a split decision victory over 10th ranked, Carla Esparza. The winner of this fight undoubtedly positions herself to challenge Megumi Fujii for the #1 ranking in the division.

UPDATE – Bjorn Rebney and Bellator ran a contest on Twitter for the fans to choose which prelim fight they wanted added to the main televised portion of the card and thanks to all the WMMA fans who voted, this fight won and will now be televised LIVE on MTV2 starting at 7pm EST.
