Hurricane is coming to Bellator as Ana Julaton pursues her MMA journey.
Ana Julaton is back at it again. After fair showing in her first MMA stint with One Championship, the 37-year-old Filipino-American and former boxing champion Ana Julaton is stepping inside the cage once again and this time it would be with Bellator MMA Promotions in the US.
Ana Julaton is actively fighting in boxing having a number of fights in Mexico but it may not be enough as the boxer turned MMA fighter is now scheduled to fight in Connecticut, U.S.A. at Bellator 185 on October 20. Julaton will face a newbie in Lisa Blaine who is also debuting in Bellator.
The current MMA record of Ana Julaton stands at 2W and 2L, as she still yet to find consistency after alternating win and loss in all of his MMA fights under One Championship. On the other hand, she faces a fighter who starts her pro MMA career on a high note after knocking out her opponent in the second round.

Lisa Blaine Pro MMA is 1 win and no loss and she puts her undefeated record against Julaton who at this stage of her career still looks to become a contender and a champion in MMA. Julaton also offers a piece of the future as she mentioned another accomplished female pro-boxer who coincidentally will be fighting on the same card on October 20th. Ana Julaton hopes to fight Heather Hardy at some point during her tenure in Bellator and she feels like the fight between the two will be full of fireworks and potential knockouts.
Ana Julaton, however still needs to pass her first test and while on paper this may look like an easy fight for Ana as she is more experienced and decorated, Lisa Blaine will be more motivated to a win against a former boxing champion and an MMA veteran can catapult her career right away.
Ana Julaton's two MMA losses came in a form of a decision, first being a split decision with Ann Osman and the other a unanimous decision with Irina Mazepa. Ana needs to impress in her debut and a knockout or a dominating decision win would really help speed up her run for another belt in MMA.
We wish Ana Julaton well on her next fight!
