According to a report from Rob DeMello of KHON 2, Bellator MMA is headed to Hawaii. The promotion is expected to take over Honolulu’s Neal S. Blaisdell Center on December 15. The card will be headlined by a Bellator women’s flyweight title fight between Hawaiian champion Ilima-Lei Macfarlane and former UFC strawweight title challenger Valérie Létourneau.

 

The promotion has yet to officially announce this card, but that official announcement could be coming as early as today.

 

Ilima-Lei Macfarlane will enter this exciting title fight with a flawless, 8-0 record. The seven most recent of those wins have occurred in the Bellator cage. Macfarlane won the inaugural Bellator flyweight bout in November of 2017, when she submitted Emily Ducote with a fifth-round triangle armbar. She has since defended her title with a third-round armbar of Alejandra Lara.

 

Bellator’s upcoming debut in Hawaii represents an exciting power move for the promotion, as the UFC has been struggling to bring the Octagon to The Aloha State for years — especially amid the recent reign of UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway.

 

UPDATE:

“Lyoto Machida vs. former Bellator middleweight champion Rafael Carvalho is set for Bellator’s Hawaii debut on Dec. 15, Scott Coker told ESPN,” Helwani reported on Twitter.

 

Are you surprised Bellator beat the UFC to Hawaii?

Bellator is the premier MMA organization on the planet. That's why Hawaii told the UFC to **** off about their stadium show, and brought in Bellator instead.

I don't see anyone on the left ?

 

That's Gabi Garcia's next opponent.

 

Yeah Macfarlana has a nice ****.  I'd put my penis in her mouth or angus but that tribal tattoo is out of place.  I don't need to be reminded of all the dudes in MMA that sport them.  Like Mark Hunt for example.
