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 prelims and promoted to the televised main card, which airs from Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla.

Bellator officials told ( 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.
