Bellator champ Ilima Lei Macfarlane continues her reign

Undefeated Bellator female flyweight champ Ilima-Lei Macfarlane now (10-0) of 10th Planet San Diego Jiu Jitsu remains unbeatable.

Just in case you missed it, all 18 bouts on Saturday’s highly anticipated Bellator 220: MacDonald vs. Fitch fight card at the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif. were streamed live on DAZN and of special note, the two title fights that sat atop this fightcard, the Bellator welterweight champ Rory Mac Donald (20-5) defended his title against Jon Fitch (31-7-1, 1 NC) in the finals of their Welterweight World Grand Prix opening round, plus everyone’s favorite, the undefeated female flyweight champion Ilima-Lei Macfarlane now (10-0) returned to dominate Veta Arteaga who now drops to (5-3) in the co-Main Event. This was Macfarlane’s third defense of her title.

With three former world champs appearing on the main card, Benson “Smooth” Henderson (26-8) from the MMA Lab taking on the Bay Area’s Adam Piccolotti (11-2) at lightweight, and Phil Davis (19-5, 1 NC) set to run it back with Liam McGeary (13-3) a light heavyweight clash, this was certainly a dandy fight card. Additionally, featherweight Gaston Bolanos (4-1) was looking forward to adding to his impressive highlight reel when he kicked off the main card against Nathan Stolen (8-4).

Preliminary action featured the U.S. debut of second-generation Israeli fighter Aviv Gozali now (2-0) after defeating Travis Crain with a rear-naked choke at 2:15 of Round #1. The 5’5″ tall Crain from Marion, Illinois was making his Pro Debut.
