The fight game is a never-ending road filled with plenty of high peaks and low valleys. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will be introduced to a pacific lumberjack ready to cleave Bellator MM’S women’s featherweight division in two with one deft swing from her mighty axe blade and chop down some foes to size at the same time. A professional since January 2013 and representing Animal’s MMA Fitness and Nutrition, Amanda Bell owns a 7-6 record in 13 career bouts as a professional comprised of five knockouts, one submission and one decision. Bell has competed with various promotions throughout her tenure as a professional including Invicta Fighting Championships and Bellator MMA. She has gone on to score a finish in six of her seven professional victories.
At SCL Army versus Marines 5, Bell faced Brittney Elkin and went on to tap her out in the second round via rear-naked choke. She knocked out Marina Shafir in round one at LOP Chaos at the Casino 5. Then in her second appearance with Invicta Fighting Championships at Invicta FC 9, Bell faced Maria Hougaard Djursaa and defeated her via TKO in the first round. She defeated Gabrielle Holloway at King of the Cage Heavy Trauma via unanimous decision. Bell defeated Elkin for the second time via TKO in the second round in her debut outing with Bellator MMA at Bellator 181. She also defeated Amber Leibrock via TKO in the first round at Bellator 215 to score her second victory under the banner of Bellator MMA.
For her next appearance with Bellator MMA at Bellator 233, Bell took on Australia’s Janay Harding and went on to defeat her via TKO in the third round.
