While initially concerned that Saturday's Bellator 58 broadcast wouldn't have time for a fourth bout, Bellator officials have changed their tune.

In fact, they're letting fans vote and decide which bout will take the final spot on the night's MTV2/EPIX broadcast.

You can choose from middleweights Brett Cooper (15-7 MMA, 2-2 BFC) vs. Jared Hess (11-3-1 MMA, 4-3 BFC), 115-pounders Jessica Aguilar (11-4 MMA, 2-1 BFC) vs. Lisa Ellis-Ward (14-6 MMA, 2-1 BFC), or bantamweights Farkhad Sharipov (13-4 MMA, 1-1 BFC) vs. Fabio Mello (8-6 MMA, 1-0 BFC).

Whichever fight gets the most votes on Bellator CEO and Chairman Bjorn Rebney's Twitter account (@BjornRebney) will be pulled from the Spike.com prelims and promoted to the televised main card, which airs from Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla.

Bellator officials told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) voting concludes on Friday at noon ET (9 a.m. PT), and the winning bout will be revealed later in the day at official Bellator 58 fighter weigh-ins. The festivities stream live on MMAjunkie.coma at 5 p.m. ET.

I hope the Jessica Aguilar fight gets chosen. Since Bellator has moved to MTV2, I don't recall seeing one female MMA fight being televised. Maybe I missed it... But they have good talent in that respect, I wish they would push the women harder.
