Bellator Signs Keri Anne Melendez to Fight Kickboxing and MMA for Bellator Starting at Dynamite

The trajectory for the Bellator: Dynamite event featuring a GLORY ring and a few GLORY fights as well on Spike TV has been interesting, to say the least. The only fight announced yet is Jose Palacios vs. TJ Arcangel, which is a bout between two Northern California muay thai fighters and doesn't sound like a fight that GLORY would put together. From what we've heard this will most likely be on the undercard portion of the show.

We've still yet to hear from GLORY or Bellator about an official card just yet. The only "known" fight is Paul Daley will be fighting, but we aren't sure who. Rumor was Bellator Welterweight Champion Douglas Lima, but, well, he's not the champion anymore. There was a photo floating around of his usurper, Andrey Koreshkov wearing a pair of GLORY gloves, but there hasn't been anything on that just yet. 

Today Bellator announced that they've signed Keri Anne Melendez to a multifight contract, including Kickboxing and MMA. The wife of Gilbert Melendez has been competing in muay thai and kickboxing, with a 4-1 amateur record and a 2-1 professional record to date. At 31 years old she has talked about possibly transitioning to MMA in the future, but it would still be a ways off. In the press release Melendez notes that she fought for Scott Coker in the past as well and looks forward to fighting for him again.

UPDATE: We've received confirmation that her fight will be on the undercard for the Dynamite event.
