UFC vet Alexis Dufresne will make her Bellator debut against Australian standout Arelen Blencowe in Temecula, California May 15. The match was announced by the promotion Friday night.

Dufresne (5-2) lost back to back fights in the UFC after winning her first five. Unable to make 135, she could find better success at featherweight.

Blencowe (5-4) has won three straight including a notable win over InvictaFC fighter Faith Van Duin. She is the former WIBA and WBF welterweight boxing champion.

No word on if this will be on the televised Spike TV card or streaming on Spike.com’s streaming prelims.

Bellator Signs Dufresne, Paim, and Razafiarison to Roster

Bellator MMA continues to expand its featherweight roster with three new signees.

Among them, UFC vet Alexis Dufresne. Dufresne (5-2) has first round finishes in all of her wins. She lost decision in both her UFC bantamweight fights, but never made weight at 135. Going up to 145 should see her at a more competitive and healthy weight.

Like Dufresne, Brazilian Roberta Paim (4-0) has first round finishes in all of her wins. Three by TKO.

France’s Iony Razafiarison (2-0) rounds out the new signees. The ground specialist has returned to MMA after a two year absence with a decision win this past January.

No word on when the fighters will be making their official Bellator debuts.
