Bellator 201: Ilima-Lei Macfarlane All Set To Defend Her Belt Against Alejandra Lara

All the MMA fans get ready for another thrilling Bellator event! Another exciting fight card is on the books of Bellator 201. Bellator returns to Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, Calif. for Bellator 201 on Saturday, June 30. The card will be headlined by the San Diego-based Ilima-Lei Macfarlane (7-0), who defends her undefeated record and newly won flyweight crown against Columbia’s Alejandra “Azul” Lara (7-1).

In addition to the women’s flyweight championship being up for grabs on June 30, Valerie Létourneau (9-6) will look to improve to 2-0 inside the Bellator cage, when she meets the always-tough Kristina Williams’ (2-0 MMA).

Ilima-Lei Macfarlane has been proving naysayers wrong since her viral MMA debut in 2015, defeating every opponent placed in front of her en route to becoming the inaugural Bellator women’s flyweight champion this past November by defeating Emily Ducote.

Hailing from Medellin, Colombia, Alejandra Lara made a statement in Bellator’s flyweight division when she finished Lena Ovchynnikova via rear-naked choke at Bellator 190. The 23-year-old knockout artist has earned seven victories in eight outings since making her professional debut in 2011 and has shown tenacity in her fights thus far, showcasing a pair of first round knockouts and multiple submissions. On the heels of her impressive promotional debut, Lara earned a shot at the championship on June 30.
