Janay Harding signs with Bellator MMA

Australian featherweight Janay Harding has joined the Bellator women’s featherweight ranks, officially signing with the promotion.

Bellator announced the news via social media yesterday.

The PUMMA trained fighter brings a 3-2 record into the promotion though the two losses on her professional record came against current UFC fighter Jessica-Rose Clark and previous Bellator title challenger Arlene Blencowe. The Aussie made her international debut in May, travelling to Hong Kong where she secured a second round stoppage over Ramona Pascual.

Harding was recently scheduled to compete on Dana White’s Contender series though visa complications forced her out of the event.

The current Bellator women’s featherweight champion is Julia Budd who in her last title defense, edged out Arlene Blencowe via split-points decision.

There has been no confirmation as to when and who Harding will face in her debut.
