The woman who might have the best chance to take down Megumi Fujii will make her tourney debut this week for Bellator Fighting Championships.
Fujii has been mixed martial arts' undisputed No. 1 in the women's 115-pound division for years, but two of the three Bellator tournament fighters closest to her status will go head-to-head on Thursday. American fighter Lisa Ward (13-5) and Irish competitor Aisling Daly (9-0) , No. 4 at 115 pounds and No. 5 at 125 in the Unified Women's MMA Rankings, will square off at Bellator 26 (FSN, times vary by region) in Kansas City, as part of the Bellator's eight-woman tournament for 115-pounders.
