Pretty f*cking cool. Hawaii and @ilimanator delivered. Electric in this building.— John Morgan (@MMAjunkieJohn) December 16, 2018
Ilima-Lei Macfarlane submits Valerie Letourneau to the delight of Honolulu. Sounds like the place is going nuts. Kind of a slow fight until the third, but once there was blood in the water, Macfarlane turned into a shark. Very nice finish.— Brett Okamoto (@bokamotoESPN) December 16, 2018
