Bellator 83 Receives Zoila Gurgel-Jessica Eye Contest

Bellator 115-pound women’s champion Zoila Gurgel will make a return to the cage sooner than expected, as she has signed to face Jessica Eye in December. MMAjunkie.com first reported the contest for Bellator 83.

Gurgel (12-1) recently returned from a lengthy layoff due to knee issues to defeat Casey Noland. Her appearance on the card gained attention with Miesha Tate let it be known that she felt it was disrespectful for Bellator to have a champion on the prelims.

Eye (8-1) has won both of her Bellator bouts and is on a five-fight win streak overall. This contest will take place at 125 pounds, so Gurgel’s title will not be on the line.
