Bellator announced it's expanding its female roster, signing Brazilian talents Bruna Ellen, Bruna Vargas and Kenya Miranda to exclusive, multi-fight deals.
Ellen (2-0), one of the top Brazilian prospects to watch in 2016, won titles in Sanshou before starting a career in mixed martial arts. The 19-year-old fighter is 2-0 with a pair or dominant victories in Sao Paulo.
Also undefeated after two professional fights is Vargas, who made a transition to MMA after a successful career in muay thai. Vargas left the upcoming XFC strawweight tournament in order to sign with Bellator.
The third signing from Brazil is 27-year-old Miranda, who holds a 2-2 record with one knockout and one submission under her belt.
The trio of Brazilian fighters now join Ilima Macfarlane, Anastasia Yankova, Lena Ovchynnikova and Keri Taylor-Melendez on the Bellator roster. The promotion has yet to announce when they will make their Bellator debut.
