After a year and a half absence, Zoila Gurgel will return to the Bellator cage Oct. 26, and finally has an opponent to train for.
Casey Noland (4-2) has been announced as the opponent for 2010 Bellator tourny champ when Bellator hits Dayton, OH in a few weeks. Noland is coming off a split decision to #5 ranked flyweight Jessica Eye at Bellator 51 last year. She opened her pro career on a three fight win streak.
Gurgel has recovered from a torn ACL, which kept her on the shelf for the past 20 months.
She is looking to continue her eight fight win streak. This fight is expected to be a precursor to the flyweight tournament which is scheduled for spring 2013.
The fight will be on the preliminary card and will stream live and free on SpikeTV.com.
