Bellator capped off its debut week in Hawaii with the second of back-to-back shows this past Saturday night.
And it’s hard to imagine anyone saying Bellator 213 didn’t deliver, especially in the main event. In the headliner Ilima-Lei Macfarlane (9-0 MMA, 8-0 BMMA) submitted Valerie Letourneau (10-7 MMA, 2-1 BMMA) to defend her women’s flyweight title.
In the process, Macfarlane sent her home fans at the Neal S. Blaisdell Center in Honolulu into a frenzy.
But that wasn’t the only big or meaningful fight. Former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida (25-8 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) debuted in the promotion and took a split decision from former middleweight champ Rafael Carvalho (15-3 MMA, 6-2 BMMA). Machida now may be on the way to a Bellator title shot.
That’s something that is happening for Neiman Gracie (9-0 MMA, 7-0 BMMA) in his next bout, no matter who it’s against. Gracie submitted Ed Ruth (6-0 MMA, 6-0 BMMA) in the opening round of the welterweight tournament. He’ll meet the winner of champ Rory MacDonald and Jon Fitch sometime in 2019, and no matter who wins that fight, the belt will be on the line against Gracie.
Take a look back at all the main-card highlights in the video above.
