Denise Kielholtz knows when she is back in the cage. Miss Dynamite fights 6 April in Budapest against Lena Ovchynnikova on Bellator 196.
Kielholtz fights her third MMA party and second in Bellator. Last November, the Bellator Kickboxing Fly Weight Champion won her MMA debut in Bellator by knocking Jessica Middleton on Bellator 188. Kielholtz won by submission in 76 seconds.
Kielholtz has the ambition to become a champion in Bellator MMA, just like the title owner of Bellator Kickboxing. In April she defended the kickbox title for the last time on Bellator Kickboxing 5 by knocking Martine Michieletto.
Finally! Budapest we will measure again…. and this Time in a Cage…. So So So excited about this one…?? #bellatormma #bellatorkickboxing #budapest #readyforwhatever!

Ovchynnikova has a lot more MMA experience. The Ukrainian won twelve of its seventeen fights, including two out of four Bellator parties. She lost her last fight from Alejandra Lara on Bellator 190. Then she knocked off in the third round by rear-naked choke.
Although Ovchynnikova won eight times through submission, Hunter has the necessary experience in kickboxing. She won twelve of eighteen parties. In 2011 she lost her former GLORY Champion Tiffany van Soest, someone who was knocking Kielholtz in 2014.
Bellator 196 concludes with a battle between James Gallagher and Hungarian Adam Borics, ESPN reports. Kielholtz-Ovchynnikova is the co-main event.
