The signing of Bucci was announced by Bellator on Wednesday.

“I feel extremely honored, excited and thankful to be part of the first group of females, fighting for Scott Coker in the new Bellator MMA Women’s Division,” Bucci said. “I cannot find the right words to truly express how I feel. This is more than a payoff for years of hard work, love and dedication to this sport. This is a dream come true!”

Bucci (7-3) has won six of her last seven fights and her most recent win came in May against Maria Hougaard Djursaa by decision. Five of her seven wins have come by stoppage and her nickname is “No Fear.”

She joins Marloes Coenen, Julia Budd, and Talita Nogueira in the Bellator women’s featherweight division and she is scheduled to make her Bellator debut later this year.
