Valerie Letourneau out of Bellator 181 event
On the same day Gegard Mousasi’s Bellator signing was made official, another one of the promotion’s free agent pickups has been forced to withdraw from her scheduled debut, according to MMAJunkie.
Bellator today announced Valerie Letourneau has suffered an injury and is out of Friday’s women’s flyweight bout with Emily Ducote. She will be replaced by Jessica Middleton.
This will be Ducote’s fifth Bellator appearance. She is coming off a first-round submission in April which helped her rebound from her first setback under the Bellator banner, which also came against Macfarlane.
