Undefeated Bellator flyweight Ilima-Lei Macfarlane will rematch Emily “Gordinha” Ducote on November 3rd to crown the inaugural Bellator flyweight champion.
Ilima-Lei Macfarlane (6-0) meets Emily Ducote (6-2) for the second time at Bellator 186– however, this time the stakes are much higher. The winner will be crowned the first ever Bellator flyweight champion.
Since debuting, Macfarlane has cemented herself as a front-runner in Bellator’s competitive flyweight division. She’s unbeaten with six wins, three of those by way of submission. The crafty and dangerous grappler last fought in April of 2017, submitting Jessica Middleton with an armbar in the second round.
Oklahoma City’s Emily Ducote has been nothing short of impressive in her own right. Ducote currently rides a two-fight win streak. Her sole loss in Bellator comes from a decision to Macfarlane in 2016.
