From the way things are looking, it seems like we may not be seeing a women fighting in Bellator MMA anytime soon. The promotion has released top ranked fighters Jessica Aguilar and Jessica Eye.
Both ladies confirmed their releases on Twitter earlier today.

Aguilar went 5-1 under Bellator and defeated quite arguable the greatest women’s MMA fighter of all time in Megumi Fuji at Bellator 69 last May. “Jag” last competed in the organization at Bellator 94 when she defeated Patricia Vidonic.
Eye went undefeated in three fights for Bellator defeating former Bellator champion Zoila Gurgel at Bellator 83 last December.
