A pair of fights have been added to the Bellator 180 card as Keri-Ann Melendez faces Sadee Monseratte Williams and Bradley Desir faces Nate Grebb.
Melendez (1-0-0) made her professional MMA debut at Bellator 165, where she knocked out Sheila Padilla in the first round. Melendez may be light on professional MMA experience, but is one of the most decorated female kickboxers in the world right now.
Williams (0-1-0) is going to be making her Bellator MMA debut in this fight, as her previous bout came in the Ring Of Combat promotion. In her lone professional MMA fighter, Williams was submitted by Jenna Serio in the first round with a rear naked choke.
Desir (9-5-0) is going to be making his Bellator MMA debut in this fight and is fighting for the first time this year. Desir previously competed against World Series Of Fighting veteran Emmanuel Walo, but suffered a decision loss to the WSOF veteran.
Grebb (3-1-0) is also going to be making his Bellator MMA debut in this fight, as all of his previous fights came in the Shogun Fights promotion. Grebb will also be competing for the first time in three-plus years, as his last bout came in October 2013.
Bellator 180 takes place on Saturday, June 24 from Madison Square Garden in New York, New York with Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
