In the co-main event of Bellator 220 earlier tonight (Sat. April 27, 2019), Ilima-Lei Macfarlane defended her women’s flyweight title against Veta Arteaga.
Macfarlane had a dominant showing against Arteaga, beating the challenger bloody in the third round. The doctor stepped in during the middle of the third round after an elbow opened up Arteaga badly. After some examination, the doctor decided the cut was far too deep to allow the fight to continue.
As a result, Macfarlane was awarded a successful title defense via TKO. Check out some highlights here:
