Bellator MMA has dropped their women’s division effective immediately following the releases of Jessica Aguilar, Jessica Eye and Felice Herrig.

“Jessica Eye, Jessica Aguilar and Felice represent all that is good in women’s MMA.  Both Eye and Aguilar are ranked No. 1 in the world in their respective divisions and carry themselves with class and distinction elevating the women’s game. I’ve said many times that fighters need to fight and fight often.  Given our current focus, we are not in position to provide these very deserving women regular and reoccurring fights on a large platform,” Rebney stated.  “And, I felt it was best to let them go and secure options that did.  I genuinely wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors and will be rooting for each of them wherever they fight.”
