This Friday’s Bellator 197 event features a women’s flyweight fight on the preliminary card when Rebecca “Ruthless” Ruth takes on Juliana Velasquez.
Ruth (6-2) looks to rebound from a second-round submission loss to reigning Bellator flyweight champ, Ilima-Lei Macfarlane. Prior to the loss, the 39-year-old was on an impressive four-fight win streak which included three knockout wins.
Velasquez (6-0) looks to follow up on a successful promotional debut this past December when she submitted Na Liang in the second round. The 31-year-old has remained undefeated throughout both her amateur and professional careers.
