No Holds Barred: Jessica Aguilar on Her Controversial Loss to Zoila Frausto, and Her Next Fight 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again speaks with mixed martial arts fighter Jessica Aguilar.

At Bellator 31 on September 30 in Lake Charles, Louisiana, Jessica Aguilar fought Zoila Frausto in the semifinals of the Bellator 115-pound women's tournament. The result was a highly-controversial split decision win for Frausto, a verdict not supported by most of those who were in attendance or watching on television. Many simply said that Jessica Aguilar was "robbed". But with the win, Zoila Frausto got a berth in the tournament finals on October 28, where she will face the unbeaten Megumi Fujii.

We spoke Saturday afternoon with Jessica Aguilar about this fight and this disputed decision. She explained her strategy of mainly keeping the fight standing, although she is a world-class grappler and American Top Team member. We discussed what she might have done differently in this fight. She also revealed that she will be fighting on that October 28 Bellator card in Hollywood, Florida, against an opponent to be named. But if Zoila Frausto is unable to fight in the tournament finals because of the injuries she suffered in the September 30 fight, Jessica Aguilar might replace her in the finals against Megumi Fujii.
