MMA Junkie reports that featherweight Amanda Bell (1-2) is set to fight Ronda Rousey's training partner and The Ultimate Fighter 18 coach Marina Shafir (1-0) at Chaos at the Casino 5 on August 10 in Los Angeles. Bell's management firm RYSE Sports Management confirmed the fight.
Shafir will be making her return to Lights Out Promotions after her debut in April. She made Chandra Engel submit with an armbar in under two minutes. Lights Out hosts events at the Hollywood Park Casino in Inglewood, California.
Bell has fought members of the Four Horsewomen before. She previously beat bantamweight Jessamyn Duke via third-round TKO in Bell's last amateur fight. She started her pro career with two loses but managed to get a second round submission on the regional circuit in April.
In her amateur career, Shafir won five in a row, with four by armbar. She trains in Los Angeles with Rousey, Duke and Shayna Baszler. Baszler will fight Bethe Correia at UFC 177 in Sacramento, California. Correia has said she will beat all four of the Horsewomen.
