This Saturday’s Bellator 190 event will feature an exciting women’s flyweight fight on the main card when Lena Ovchynnikova returns to take on Mary Rouse Mejia.
Ovchynnikova (12-4-0) is riding high on a two-fight win streak, her latest victory being a TKO over Helen Harper. The 30-year-old fights out of Ukraine and currently trains at the Union Gym. She was a multiple time muay thai world champion before making the transition to MMA.
Ecuador’s Mejia (1-0) will be returning from an over six year layoff. She’ll be making her first Bellator MMA appearance, following a first-round submission win in her professional debut back in 2011.
Bellator 190 takes place this Saturday December 9 from the Nelson Mandela Forum in Florence, Italy. The event will be aired on Spike TV.
