Kerri Anne Melendez, wife of former Strikeforce lightweight champion and current UFC fighter Gilbert ‘El Nino’ Melendez, is looking to make her move into MMA.

She was recently signed to Bellator and is set to make her debut at the promotion’s ‘Dynamite’ event, which will take place on Sept. 19. Her debut will take place in the GLORY kickboxing ring, but after that she will look to enter the cage and transition to MMA.

Check out this rare video of Melendez sparring during training, shot by BJPENN.COM’s Layzie The Savage.
