Tonight, on Bellator, Jessica Eye won one of the biggest fights of her career. Jessica choked Bellator Champion Zoila Gurgel unconscious a mere 58 seconds into their fight. Before choking her out with a standing arm-triangle choke, Jessica rocked Zoila with strikes. This marks only the second loss of Zoila’s career, the first being to Miesha Tate. Despite the loss, Zoila is still Bellator’s champion because of their tournament format. So as has happened before, Bellator has a champion that is in a way discredited. Hopefully Bellator has another women’s tournament soon and enters Jessica Eye. The potential of a rematch between the two, especially after such a one-sided victory, might help create interest in the tournament. Fans always love to watch a good old fashioned grudge match. Congratulations to Jessica Eye on her very impressive performance and we hope that Zoila rebounds and comes back stronger.
