Bellator 224 “Budd vs Rubin” Results
Winstar World Resort and Casino was home to another round of July fireworks as Bellator 224 “Budd vs Rubin” unleashed a whirlwind of explosive fights from start to finish. From Christian Edwards to Arlene Blencowe and Juliana Velasquez to Ed Ruth Juliana Budd capped off the night with a brutal body kick that seemed to shut down Olga Rubin’s brain for a second allowing Budd to pounce and finish the young undefeated sensation. Sitting 3rd row cage side with my two sons made for an amazing night. Winstar and Bellator and a slew of young talent and rising stars mixed with some elite veteran fighters made it awesome!!!

Helluva night and Bellator got it right. Fantastic match ups and fights that set the stage for some even bigger cage moments yet to come made this one a lot of fun. Budd showed she is the best Featherweight in the world and Rubin will be back bigger and badder than ever. Olga is a class act with a ton of potential and promise that I believe one day will be a Champion.
