Arteaga vs Yanez Official for Bellator 257!

Six months later, Veta Arteaga and Desiree Yanez get another opportunity to dance. The two high level flyweights will square off at Bellator 257: Nemkov vs Davis 2 on Friday, April 16 at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT. This fight was postponed when a positive COVID test forced the cancellation of their first scheduled meeting last October. Arteaga vs Yanez will headline the Bellator 257 prelims, which begin at 4pm MST on Showtime.

A former Bellator world-title challenger, Arteaga (5-4 MMA, 4-4 BMMA) looks to take the next step in her development against the tough, gritty Yanez (5-2 MMA, 0-0 BMMA). Known for her exciting, all-action style, Arteaga has become a Bellator fan favorite in recent years. We are excited for Veta’s chance to showcase her improved skillset!
