Juliana Velasquez does not want Dennis Kielholtz to rematch – MMA Sports

Uncasville, Connecticut – When the official decision for the main event is read in the cage Bellator 262, It wasn’t the first time Juliana Velasquez Booed in her career.

Without being confused by the opinions of those in the seat, Velázquez (12-0 MMA, 7-0 BMMA) won the split decision by turning from a kickboxer to an MMA fighter, and the judge did it right. I’m sure I understood. Dennis Kielholtz..

“In the first round, she got stronger,” Velázquez told MMA Junkie at a post-war press conference. “She was able to get closer and hit me, but I was away. Many of those shots were missing. It was a close combat, but as the fight progressed, I got a little more of my own. I was able to find the ditch. I was able to stop her in her footsteps.

“I think it’s been much more effective since the third round. I was very confident when they announced the decision. I think the third round was mine.”

After the fight, Kielholtz (6-3 MMA, 6-2 BMMA) expressed disappointment with the decision and called for a rematch. However, the champion is unaware of the need for a second meeting. At least you don’t need a meeting with Kielholtz.

“If I’m going to rematch with someone I deserve, it’s Ilima-Lei (McFarlane),” Velázquez told MMA Junkie. “She had a lot of title defenses. After this fight I just move forward …. I think the most sensible fight will be the fight against Ilima Ray or Liz Carmouche. Is the (next) fight I want to do. “

McFarlane (11-1 MMA, 10-1 BMMA), who has recovered from knee surgery, has not been competing since losing the Velázquez title due to a unanimous decision in December. As for Carmoush (16-7 MMA, 3-0 BMMA), she was undefeated in promotion and recently defeated Kana Watanabe in a 35-second TKO.
