Bellator 293: Sara Collins Hopes For Active 2023 Following Win Over Sorenson

Bellator debut against a women’s MMA pioneer? No problem for featherweight Sara Collins who finished Pam Sorenson in the first round via submission at Bellator 293 on Friday night.

“I do, do that a lot in training, and get in trouble with it because I go in that position and then get stuck there a little bit. Today it worked so I’m not going to complain,” Collins told reporters including Cageside Press at her post-fight scrum on Friday.

Collins (4-0) made her Bellator debut against Sorenson riding a three-fight win streak outside of the organization. The 27-year-old from Australia made the most of the opportunity and added a big name to her resume right off the bat.

With a big win in the bag now and still early in 2023 Collins hopes to get back into the cage sooner than later.

“Hopefully another fight this year. Since starting MMA…we were in a pandemic as well, but I’ve only had one fight a year for my whole career so I’d like to get a year where I have at least two fights. That’d be nice,” she said.

“I just want to keep fighting.”
