Megumi Fujii to Fight in Bellator on June 10

The pound-for-pound best female fighter in the world, Megumi Fujii will fight on the June 10 Bellator event, CEO Bjorn Rebney announced Friday.

Her opponent is yet to be named but Fujii is also likely to compete in the rumored 115-pound tournament to be held in Bellator's third season which starts in August. Other rumored tournament participants include Rosi Sexton and Elena Reid.

Fujii is currently 19-0 with 16 of those wins coming by way of submission but has not fought on North American soil since a 2007 victory over Lisa Ward.

"Mega Megu" also holds victories over Mika Nagano, Saori Ishioka and Seo Hee Ham but has had trouble finding tough opponents recently in Japan. Yuka Tsuji has loomed as an opponent for quite some time but the fight hasn't been made due to promotional difficulties and the recently retired and fellow top pound-for-pounder Miku Matsumoto was good friends with Fujii and fans had to make do with a staged exhibition bout.
