An exciting featherweight contest has been added to the Bellator 233 main card on Nov. 8.
Leslie “The Peacemaker” Smith (11-7-1) is scheduled to face Australia’s Arlene Blencowe (12-7) in a featherweight bout that could determine the divisions next title challenger in 2020.
Smith enters the bout on a three-fight win streak. That streak includes her last two fights under the UFC banner and her debut at Bellator 224 in July– a majority decision win over Sinead Kavanagh. Smith’s resume includes wins over Raquel Pennington, Jenifer Maia, Rin Nakai and Irene Aldana,
“Angerfist” Blencowe has gone 2-0 since losing a split-decision to featherweight champ Julia Budd in 2017. Both of those victories have come by way of KO/TKO. Blencowe’s resume includes wins over Faith McMah, Gabrielle Holloway, Janay Harding and Sinead Kavanagh.
Who will you be rooting for?
