Zoila Frausto-Gurgel Wiki Update Wiki

Gurgel debuted in mixed martial arts on February 13, 2009 and faced Karina Hallinan and winning via split decision.  She would later compete in Strikeforce and Bellator.  In Bellator, she entered the 115lb tournament and won 2 controversial split decisions on her way to the inaugural 115lb womens champsionship. 

 

Gurgel later suffered a torn ACL that sidelined her for a year before defeating Casey Noland by unanimous decision.  She next faced Jessica Eye in a non-title bout at 125lbs in which she lost in the first minute via standing arm triangle.  Many say she should stay at her natural 115lb weight class rather than fight the bigger fighters at 125lb.
