This coming Friday night, Ilima-Lei Macfarlane defends her title at Bellator 201 vs. Alejandra Lara on Paramount Network from the Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, California.
Macfarlane, a 26-year-old from Hawaii, now trains out of San Diego and the San Diego Combat Academy when she has become a brown belt.
Last November, she became the Bellator champion with a fifth round submission vs. Emily Ducote, locking up a triangle armbar. Macfarlane is 7-0 in her career, with six of those fights coming inside the Bellator cage.
