There’s a doubleheader of Bellator MMA events this weekend. On December 14th at Bellator 212 in Hawaii, Michael Chandler and lightweight champion Brent Primus will finally have their rematch, way over a year after Primus won the belt due to a Chandler injury. The co-main of that card is Frank Mir against Javy Ayala.
The much bigger show is Saturday, December 15th, from the same venue in Honolulu. Women’s flyweight champion and Hawaii native Ilima-Lei Macfarlane defends her title against former UFC strawweight title challenger Valerie Letourneau in the main event. Also featured is ex-UFC champion Lyoto Machida making his Bellator debut against Rafael Carvalho in a middleweight bout. Ed Ruth takes on Neiman Gracie in the welterweight Grand Prix quarterfinals, “King Mo” battles Liam McGeary, and opening the main card is Kona Oliveira vs. Nainoa Dung.
