Zoila Frausto Returns to the Cage; Faces Lybarger in RFA

11895954_883037768455978_3166790647669478076_nAfter a nearly two year absence from MMA, Bellator tournament winner Zoila Frausto has a date and opponent for her return to the cage.

Frausto will take on Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger at RFA’s 31st event October 9th in Las Vegas. The match was announced Tuesday.

Frausto (12-4) lost three straight at flyweight before deciding to take a hiatus from MMA, concentrating on Muay Thai gaining a few titles along the way. With the UFC adding a strawweight division, Frausto is starting her campaign to get signed there.

Standing in her way is Lybarger (5-1) who has had impressive back to back to back wins in RFA. She also looks to sign with the UFC in the near future.

The match will serve as the co-main event and will air on AXS TV October 9th.
