Holloway Facing Arlene Blencowe in Top 10 Featherweight Clash at Bellator 146
Pre-PostGame, Inc. proudly announces that featherweight mixed martial artist Gabby Holloway (6-3) will return to the Bellator MMA cage on November 20th at the Global Events Center in Thackerville, Oklahoma, facing Arlene Blencowe (6-5) at Bellator 146. The showdown will be a meeting of two Top 10 combatants, with Holloway currently ranked eighth and Blencowe sixth on the Unified Women’s MMA Rankings.
“I am super excited for this opportunity to fight for Bellator again,” said Holloway, who lost a hard-fought decision to Julia Budd at Bellator 133 earlier this year. “In my last fight for Bellator, I was a little too concerned about trying to put on a show and look good for the fans instead of actually fighting my fight. Now I know that I just have to set my own pace, fight my fight and prove to everyone that I belong in there. Bellator is a big stage, but I have to view it as being just another cage. That is my mentality and how I am preparing for this fight.”
Fighting out of Virginia, Holloway was undefeated in seven amateur matches before turning professional in 2012. She engulfed on an MMA career after having prominent wrestling experience, and she has worked hard at her craft to groom herself into a well-rounded mixed martial artist.
“I have a wrestling background, but I’m not one of those wrestlers who will just lay and prey,” she remarked. “When I’m on the ground, I am definitely looking to do some ground-and-pound. I have been working with a new boxing coach to step up my boxing game, so I am ready to show Arlene some new looks. She is probably expecting me to just be a wrestler and not try to box with her since boxing is her strong suit, but she has another thing coming if that is the way she’s thinking.”
The feature fight on November 20th will involve middleweights Melvin Manhoef (29-12-1) and Hisaki Kato, but Holloway predicts heavy action will also go down when she steps into the Bellator cage with Blencowe.
“Don’t miss this fight,” she stated. “I am going to go out there and give it everything I have. I am not going to leave it in the judges’ hands this time. Whether I stop her or she stops me, somebody is getting stopped.”
