Tonight an exciting women’s flyweight fight will feature on the Bellator 182 preliminary card when Jaymee Nievara takes on Corina Herrera.
Nievara (4-3) made her Bellator debut in May 2016, knocking out Stephanie Austo. She has since lost two in a row, after being submitted by Sarah D’Alelio and Jamie Thorton. The 32-year-old, also known as “Queenie”, feels as though she has made major improvements to her MMA game and looks to showcase them tonight by taking out a highly-touted prospect.
Herrera (3-3) will be making her promotional debut, following an impressive unanimous decision win over Erica Gonzalez at last October’s TWC 25 event. The 28-year-old has competed in a variety of weight-classes during her career including strawweight and bantamweight, however she has found the most success at flyweight.
Bellator 183 takes place tonight, Saturday 23 September, from the AP Center in San Jose, California, United States. The preliminary card featuring Herrera VS Nievara will be aired live on Spike.com from 7pm EST.
