Budd (11-2-0) made the first successful defense of her belt at last Saturday’s Bellator 189 event, a split-decision win over Arlene Blencowe.
32-year-old Talita Nogueira (7-0-0) is widely being tipped as the next challenger for the title. During a recent chat with WMMA Rankings, the Brazilian says she feels ‘prepared’ and ‘ready’ for a very likely featherweight title shot. She says she wants to be the biggest female representative of jiu jitsu in MMA, having finished all of her opponents in the first three-rounds thanks to her world-class BJJ game. Take a look at her comments below.
I am building my career in MMA and I am undefeated with 7 victories, nobody has reached 3 rounds with me. I feel prepared, I have my fighting style and I want to be the biggest female representative of Jiu Jitsu in mma. Fighting for the belt would be amazing! I’m ready.
