Jessica Aguilar’s return could help re-establish Bellator women’s division

One of Bellator’s biggest stars is making her return in March.

Jesslica “Jag” Aguilar is set to make her return to the cage at Bellator 94 on March 28 in a rematch against Patricia Vidonic.

Aguilar, who is 14-4 is coming off of a huge win over Japanese superstar Megumi Fujii, who she defeated back in May 2012. For Bellator, having one of their biggest stars in the women’s division return to action could be a precursor to the promotion establishing a solid women’s flyweight division.

With Bellator champion Zolia Frausto Gurgel signing with Invicta Fighting Championships, Aguilar could climb her way to the top of Bellator’s mountain. Her only two oppositions at this point would be Jessica “Evil” Eye, who defeated Gurgel back in December 2012, and Felice “Lil’ Bulldog” Herrig.

This, of course, means Bellator would need to actually hold a women’s tournament, something that I will believe when I see it.

Still, Aguilar should not count out Viodonic, who will surely be looking to avenge previous loss to Jag. That said, I do not see Aguilar losing this fight.

Even if she was to defeat Viodonic, and Bellator never holds a women’s flyweight tournament, I’m sure Aguilar could go to Invicta FC. After all, this would mean a possible rematch against Gurgel, who defeated Aguilar back in 2010, or a rematch against Carla Esparza, who is the current Invicta FC Strawweight champion.
