Tonight an exciting women’s flyweight fight will feature on the Bellator 183 preliminary card when Brooke Mayo takes on Kaytlin Neil.
Mayo (0-1) is coming off a controversial doctor stoppage loss to Veta Arteaga. Many fans and media outlets feel as though Mayo was winning the fight until the referee decided to stop it in the third round due to a swelling on her eye. Also known as “The Bully”, Mayo gained a very impressive 8-3 amateur record before turning pro, including six brutal finishes. The 25-year-old looks to make a statement in her second Bellator MMA fight and show the world why she is the one to watch at 125-pounds.
Neil (0-2) will be making her Bellator MMA debut. Much like Mayo, she is new to the professional scene and has dropped her first two fights by way of a decision and a TKO. As an amateur she went 4-2 and owns a notable split decision victory over one of Bellator’s top stars in Veta Arteaga. The 25-year-old will be searching for her first victory as a professional tonight.
Bellator 183 takes place tonight, Saturday 23 September, from the AP Center in San Jose, California, United States. The preliminary card featuring Brooke Mayo VS Kaytlin Neil will be aired live on Spike.com from 7pm EST.
