Zoila Gurgel to Meet Carina Damm at Bellator 57

Bellator champion Zoila Gurgel will be looking for her seventh consecutive victory when she meets Carina Damm at Bellator 57 on Nov. 12.

Since Damm has not won a Bellator tournament, the bout will be a non-title contest. Since winning the belt in October 2010, Gurgel has not been given the chance to defend her title.
