Chiara Penco to Clash with Aleksandra Toncheva at Bellator Milan

By Tudor Leonte Aug 31, 2020


Bellator MMA is hosting two cards in Milan, Italy, in September.

It seems that the Bellator European Series is ready to make its long-awaited return after the long hiatus forced by the ongoing COVID-19 health emergency. According to multiple sources, Italian fighter Chiara Penco will face Aleksandra Toncheva Plamenova in a 115-pound clash that will go down on an upcoming card in Milan, Italy, on Sept. 26. The sources asked for anonymity since the news isn’t official yet.

In her latest cage appearance, former Extreme Cage Fighting champion Penco (4-2) dropped a decision in front of Danni Neilan at Bellator 240. Prior, "Beasty Barbie" lost her divisional title to Karolina Wojcik after a close match that took place at EFC 76 back in December 2018. That loss snapped a four-bout winning streak that featured all submission victories.

IMMAF World and two-time European Champion Toncheva (2-1-1) is debuting in Bellator after upending Katie Saull via unanimous decision in her latest cage appearance. Prior, she edged Anita Doganova via decision before facing Camila Rivarola at XFN 14 in a battle that ended in a draw.

Recently, BJPenn.com reported that UFC vet Carlo Pedersoli Jr. (11-3) will make his Bellator debut on a card that will also go down in Milan too but on Sept. 24. "Semento" is set to lock horns with Grachik Bozinyan (10-5), who is still looking for his first victory under the Bellator banner.
