Bellator 182 has added an exciting featherweight clash between Sinead “KO” Kavanagh (4-1) and Arlene “Angerfist” Blencowe (9-6). Kavanagh was handed her first professional loss by Iony Razafiarison in February. She will be looking to bounce back and showcase improvements.
Blencowe last fought in Bellator in 2016, losing a majority decision to Julia Budd. Since that loss, Blencowe fought two times in 2017– once for Sledgehammer Promotions, and once for Australia Fighting Championship. Blencowe won both of her fights outside of Bellator by KO/TKO. She has now officially resigned with Bellator and will look to continue her knockout streak.
Earlier this year, Julia Budd was crowned the inaugural Bellator featherweight champion by defeating Marloes Coenen via fourth round TKO. Both Kavanagh and Blencowe will be looking to make a statement in the featherweight division.
Bellator 182 takes place in Verona, New York on August 25.
