Gina Begley (0-2) is set to make her return to MMA early next year, as “Jellybean” will take on Heather Corder (1-3) at Warrior FC’s next event on March 4.
“Knuckle Up or Shut Up” is the first 2017 offering from Jimbo Collins’ promotion, as the headliner will feature a bout between rising stars Nick Baker and Ken Beverly.
After a 5-3 amateur career, Begley made her pro debut at Invicta FC 12 in 2015. She lost that bout via TKO with one second left in the first round. She then returned to action last July, where she was submitted by Marissa Caldwell at Hardrock MMA 81.
Corder returned from a layoff of more than six years in December, as she took on Evva Johnson at Warrior FC’s “Bad Blood.” She was submitted in the bout via arm bar in the first round.
The fight card features a total of four pro bouts, as Anthony Trotter (4-5) will also take on William Ewers (1-1), and Michael Cockerham (9-17) and Jerry Burns (11-20) will square off for the third time.
