Monica Arteaga and Mercedes Terrell have been selected to represent Bellator as round-card girls and to assist with “promotions and marketing,” stated a press release sent by the promotion on Thursday.
Both 25-year-old women will participate in all of season two’s events.
“I love MMA and Bellator is an amazing organization,” said Terrell, of Orange County, Calif. “I’m looking forward to being five feet away from the cage and watching all the excitement once it starts tonight and for the rest of Season 2.”
Terrell and Arteaga will debut tonight in the opening round of Bellator’s lightweight and featherweight tournament, which airs live on FOX Sports Net at 8 p.m. ET.
“Becoming a Bellator Girl was an opportunity that I just couldn’t pass up,” stated Arteaga, who hails from Chicago. “I love MMA and I love to travel so I’m just beyond excited. It’s really the chance of a lifetime.”
