Bellator signs Coenen, Budd to bring back women fighting



Bellator this morning announed the signing of Marloes Coenen, the former Strikeforce women's bantamweight champion, as well as noted woman kickboxer Julia Budd, to the organization as the first two fighters in a planned 145 pound weight class.

The promotion has also made overtures to both Cris Cyborg and Gina Carano to compete in the division, but has a deal with neither.

A press release stated Coenan and Budd would square off in a fight on Spike TV later this year.

Who had the best show?
