Janay Harding will return to the Bellator cage later this month, where the Gold Coast based featherweight will welcome promotional newcomer Marina Mokhnatkina at Bellator 219.
The event takes place on March 29 (March 30 in Australia) at Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, California.
Harding (4-3) is coming off a TKO victory against Sinead Kavanagh at Bellator 207. “Hollowpoint” opened up a deep cut on the forehead of the SBG trained fighter, forcing the clash to be stopped by the doctor in between rounds one and two.
Mokhnatkina (4-1), meanwhile, will be looking to bounce back for the first time in her short MMA career after dropping a majority decision to Liana Jojua just over 12 months ago. The 30 year-old Russian made her MMA debut in 2016 and has fought all her bouts in the Global Fight Nights promotion.
