Tonight, at Bellator 210 in Thackerville, Okla., Bruna Ellen takes on Kristina Williams in a flyweight battle with potential title implications.
RECAP: Ellen in the blue gloves and Williams in the red! Bruna gets off to a fast start– closing the distance and landing some nice overhand rights. Bruna is moving laterally very well and has been able to find her range early. Williams is plodding forward and looking to utilize her reach advantage. She lands two very nice head kicks that catch Bruna with the toes. With 30 seconds left in the first round, Ellen looks for a body lock takedown but it is defended by the “Warhorse”. Fun first round! Bruna is throwing looping punches to break through the guard of Williams. Williams is busier in the second round– really mixing in hard kicks. Bruan’s got some swelling on her left eye. Ellen catches a stiff kick to the midsection by Williams and takes the fight to the ground. Kristina launches some elbows off before kicking Ellen off of her. This fight can easily be 1-1 so far. Ellen could be fatiguing here– Bruna has been relentless with her takedown attempts. A little past two minutes left in the last round, Bruna goes for an inside sweep but Williams reverses and ends up on top. Kristina stands up and welcomes Ellen back to her feet! This is a great match up. Bruna comes forward with this fearless energy and Williams has some scary accurate striking. They brawl until the final bell and this fight is going to the judges!
Always smiling and ready for a fight. Bruna Ellen prepping for tonight💪🏼 #Bellator210
