Featherweight prospect Brittney Elkin is set to make her Bellator debut on Friday night at “Bellator 181: Campos vs. Girtz 3” in Thackerville, Okla.

Elkin (3-3 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) steps in on short notice to face Amanda Bell (4-4 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) in a rematch from April 2014. Bell’s original opponent for Friday’s card, Alexis Dufresne, withdrew from the event due to undisclosed reasons, leaving an opportunity for Elkin to sign on for her most high-profile fight to date.

Yeah not their best.

I like to post these articles that have L2 (BOTR) fights on there so people can see the cancellations, etc.

For example the 2 women fights Leternou/Ducote and Dufresne/Bell are both off the card and its L2 tradition not to add a bunch of fights late.

Same with LFA they lost Steven Peterson/Angel Huerta and their Main event with Andrea Lee/Davina Maciel.

Fortunately those fights were scrapped over the weekend and we were able to add the next 2 best fights from that card.

Would rather see team fedors moldavskys Bellaforce debut,rafael lovato vs rhodes,or even the Justin lawrence or fialho fights on main over any wmma matchup.

I hate having female fights in main cards over better mens matchups....

All those fights you listed are part of this weekend BOTR (L2) card. The only one that isn't is the Moldavsky fight because of a late opponent change.

I agree with that. It's like MMA organizations try to cram WMMA down the viewers' throats. The UFC does it constantly as well. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy WMMA but not when you're putting .500 fighters on the main card just because they're women. It's special treatment which is apparently exactly what they don't want so it's confusing to me really.
