Budd to face Coenen for women’s featherweight crown at Bellator 174

Bellator MMA announced yesterday Canadian Julia Budd (9-2-0) and Dutch native Marloes Coenen (23-7-0) will meet in the main event at Bellator 174 for the company’s inaugural featherweight belt.

Some wondered if the fight would come about when Coenen surprisingly lost to Alexis Dufresne at Bellator 155 last May, but it is now official.
