The Battle Between Leah McCourt And Dayana Silva Set To Be A Part Of Bellator 285 Lineup
A featherweight encounter between Leah McCourt (6-2, 1 KO) and Dayana Silva (10-7, 2 KOs) is now officially part of the Bellator 285 main card, promotion officials announced on Monday.
Bellator 285 is set to take place at 3Arena in Dublin and will be headlined by the fight of Benson Henderson and Peter Queally. McCourt is coming into this event on the back of losing a 6-match winning streak against Sinead Kavanagh. The fight was decided via a unanimous decision on February 25.
The 29-year-old fighter has a record of 4-1 in Bellator and has a notable win against UFC flyweight contender Manon Fiorot under the Cage Warrior banner. On the other hand, Dayana Silva isn’t having the best of times inside the ring.
The Brazilian suffered losses against Julia Budd and Arlene Blencowe in her first two promotional appearances. However, she bounced back against Janay Harding in her most recent bout on April 23. The 31-year-old fighter has secured 10 wins over the course of her professional career.
Regardless of what the result is in the McCourt-Silva fight, we can safely say that both fighters will be up for it.
