Bellator featherweight champion Julia Budd will make her first title defense in Thackerville, Oklahoma, on December 1st against Arlene “Angergfist” Blencowe.
“The Jewel” Budd (10-2) stopped WMMA pioneer Marloes Coenen in the fourth round of Bellator 174’s main event in March to claim the inaugural title. She currently rides an eight-fight win streak.
Blencowe (10-6) enters the championship fight off a split decision victory over Sinead Kavanagh in August. She rides a three-fight win streak.
This will be the second time that Blencowe faces Budd. The two previously fought in October of 2016 at Bellator 162. Budd defeated Blencowe via majority decision.
