The tree of diversity that is Bellator MMA continues to blossom within its international ranks. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet a boomerang of golden grit whose intensity has caused opponents a lifetime of pain and suffering. A professional mixed martial artist since April 2014 and representing Kings Academy of Martial Arts, Janay Harding owns a 6-4 record in 10 professional bouts comprised of four knockouts and two decisions. Harding has spent the majority of her career as a pro-MMA fighter with Bellator MMA and has also fought for several promotions in her home nation of Australia including Eternal MMA. She has finished four of her six victories during her tenure as a professional mixed martial artist thus far with three first-round finishes. Harding has made it on to the scorecards twice in her pro career with both of those wins going the distance over a duration of three rounds and a period of 15 minutes.
At Eternal MMA 5, she defeated Helen Malone via TKO in the first round. Harding also defeated her next two opponents via TKO in Ramona Pascual and Jess Doueihi. Then in her second appearance with Bellator MMA at Bellator 207, she defeated Sinead Kavanaugh via TKO in round one. Harding defeated Marina Mokhnatkina via unanimous decision at Bellator 219 to earn back to back wins with Bellator MMA.
For her next outing under the banner of Bellator MMA at Bellator 251, she defeated Jessy Miele via unanimous decision. The win earned Harding the second decision victory of her professional career. She also picked up win number three under the banner of Bellator MMA in the process. With double-digit experience under her belt, Harding is one boomerang whose precise punching power packs plenty of lightning edge when she gets into a throwdown!
