Zoila Frausto and Megumi Fujii entrenched a future bout with each other last night in Lake Charles, Louisiana, by earning victories in their respective fights at Bellator Fighting Championship’s 31st event. Fighting in the semi-finals of the promotion’s ongoing, season three, women’s tournament, Frausto earned a split decision victory over Jessica Augilar and Fujii (pictured left) tapped out Lisa Ward with a first round armbar.
“Jessica was incredibly tough tonight, but I thought I did really well,” Frausto was quoted saying in a press release from the promotion. “I’m just really excited to fight in the Finals.”
“Now I get to go back to Japan and rest up,” said Fujii. “For the championship fight against Zoila, I’m really going to focus on my striking ability, and come back to the States strong and try and win the Bellator Championship.”
In another notable match-up from last night’s main card, Yoshiyuki Yoshida was unable to continue into the third round against Chris Lozano, after a right hand from the 6-0 fighter forced his eye to swell shut.
