In a major fight between two of the top women fighters in the world, and arguably the top two in the 115-pound weight class, Jessica Aguilar will take on Japanese star Megumi Fujii at Bellator 69 on Friday, May 18. This card will take place at the L'Auberge Du Lac Casino in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and will be televised live in the U.S. on MTV2 and in HD on Epix.
We spoke with Jessica Aguilar by phone this past Thursday to preview this important and high-profile fight.
"The sport is growing for us," she observed in this interview, regarding opportunities for women fighters. She discussed this fight with Megumi Fujii, whom she called "a legend." She also hopes to get in another tournament in Bellator so she can have a crack at a championship. In addition, she said she is continuing her Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training both in a gi and without a gi. We also discussed if she would like to compete in the ADCC World Submission Fighting Championships next year, her desire to teach young athletes, and much more.
She also requested that we include this statement which she sent us after the interview:
"I want to give a huge thanks to all my sponsors, teammates, fans, family and all the media like yourself who have helped me on this journey, Eddie. I am blessed and very appreciative to everyone for their continuous support and love. I don't have words to say how much it means to me. Also a huge GRACIAS Bjorn for giving me this opportunity! Smile & Believe."
