Nidcali Rivera-Calanoc to face Jen Aniano in June

If Battlegrounds MMA wanted to give their June 27 event a title, they could go with “The Night Queen Cometh.”

According to reports, Invicta FC veteran Nicdali Rivera-Calanoc, known to fans as The Night Queen, will take on prospect Jen “Tink” Aniano in the co-main event of Battlegrounds MMA 5.

Rivera-Calanoc has spent the last year away from competition. Her last fight was in July 2013 against former Invicta FC Atomweight title holder Jessica Penne. The former champion submitted The Night Queen in the last few seconds of the first round.

Aniano is 0-2 in professional competition though she had an extensive run as an amateur. It’s easy to say that she’s the underdog in this fight, but she could pull out the win. If she does, we could see her enter the ranks of Invicta Fighting Championships or even the octagon – should she decide to step up to strawweight.
