    KHON2 Sports Director Rob DeMello has confirmed through multiple sources close to the event that Bellator will make its first-ever trip to Hawaii on Dec. 15 for an event at the Neal S. Blaisdell Center that will be headlined by the Punahou graduate.

    The undefeated Macfarlane will defend her flyweight title against UFC veteran Valerie Letourneau in an event that will be televised on DAZN Network.

    An official announcement is expected to be made as early as Wednesday....

    They've recognized her star potential and are treating her as such.

    I'm happy to see it. She's a fun personality and really talented as well.

    There is also the fact that Max has pulled out of fights a few times - coupled with pushing for the DAZN market, it was a good move to build the fan base even if they technically lose some money on the event.

    The message to Hawaii is, Bellator has something for you that the UFC doesn't.
