Friday night at the Pechenga Casino in Temecula, California Bellator will have its 201st offering that will air on the Paramount Network and the Bellator App.
The main event features Ilima-Lei Macfarlane defending her title for the first time against Colombian Alejandra Lara. Both made weight for the title fight with Macfarlane tipping the scales at an even 125 and Lara at 124.6.
The second bout of the main card could see the next title challenger as Valerie Letourneau (126) faces Kristina Williams (125.4).
The only preliminary female bout sees the return of Keri-Anne Melendez (116) face Hawaii’s Tiani Valle (114.5) in a strawweight tilt. This will stream on the Bellator App.
There was to be another preliminary fight between the undefeated Kristi Lopez and Paola Ramirez, but Ramirez came in at 9.67 pounds over the flyweight limit, and the match was scrapped. Lopez weighed in officially at 125.5 pounds. She will most likely keep her fight purse.
