McCourt Returns Against Harding At Bellator London
The progression of Bellator’s rising star continues overseas at Bellator London. Leah McCourt is set to face off against Janay Harding on May 16.
This will be a quick turnaround for McCourt (4-1), who last fought in February at Bellator 240. She beat Judith Ruis via unanimous decision in a bout that was turned into the main event following a number of injuries to the card.
Bellator has slowly tested McCourt as they have done with their other prospects, and Harding (5-4) is a big step-up for the 27-year-old. Harding is coming off of a TKO-loss against Amanda Bell at UFC 233 in November. She is 2-2 in Bellator and was coming off of back to back wins before the Bell loss.
Bellator London takes place inside The SSE Arena. The main event will be a rivalry bout, with James Gallagher taking on Cal Ellenor.
