Bellator will return to the business of booking women's MMA in late-May, announcing Megumi Fujii vs. Jessica Aguilar for the May 18th Bellator 69 event in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

This will be the fourth Bellator appearance for Fujii (25-1), the promotion where she earned his first career defeat in a five round split decision loss to Zoila Gurgel for the Bellator 115-pound title. Since that October 2010 loss, the 37-year-old Fujii has won three fights in a row in her native Japan.

Since her own fall 2010 defeat to Gurgel, the 29-year-old Aguilar (13-4) has won four straight including two in the Bellator cage. She is 3-1 in the promotion and competed in one of the few female fights they had in 2011.

While it wasn't announced, it should be assumed the winner will get a title shot at Gurgel, who has been recovering from a serious knee injury she suffered last October. Gurgel has never defended the title she won by defeating Fujii.

Bellator 69 will also feature the finals of the season six lightweight tournament and a heavyweight tournament qualifier between Ron Sparks and Kevin Asplund.
