A strawweight pairing of IMMAF World Championships feature, Danni Neilan, and promotional newcomer, France’s Claire Lopez is set to open the action at Bellator Milan on September 26th. from the Allianz Cloud Arena in Milan, Italy.
2-0 as a professional, Roscommon native, Neilan maintained her unbeaten record at Bellator 240 in Dublin this February, scoring a unanimous decision win over Chiara Penco – whom she shares this September 26th. event with.
Hoping to extend her winning run to two fights, Lopez makes the move from Shogun MMA – following a knockout victory over Anna Astvik in July of last year.
Competing as a professional since September of last year on home soil once again, Neilan made the perfect start to her career – scoring a shutout judging win over Camila Rivarola. As an amateur, Neilan had scored a 5-3 record – with triumphs coming opposite notable names such as Anette Ӧsterberg, Ilaria Norcia, and Beckie Ainscough.
Renowned finisher, Lopez has scored stoppages in each and every one of her professional outings. With a 4-2 résumé – the Londres native has finished Hanna Gujwan, Laïla Sekaf, and Alexandra Alvare.
