Boise, ID (7/30/18)— One of Boise’s most accomplished MMA fighters will be inside the cage at CenturyLink Arena on September 21st when Bellator make its second-ever visit to Boise. Veta Arteaga will take on Bellator Kickboxing Flyweight Champion Denise Kieholtz at Bellator 205: Curran vs. McKee, with Artega fighting for the hometown crowd for the first time since May 2016.

Arteaga is the first local fighter to be announced on a card that is expected to include many Boise athletes.
