Round 3: Ducote has been blacked up around both eyes. Macfarlane clinches up with her as we pass the 90 second mark and drives hard knees into the body. Ducote can’t get away until 2:16. Two right hooks blast Ducote. 1-2 combo connects. Ducote loops out hooks that don’t change the equation.

Round 4: It’s desperation time for Ducote as she has a 3-0 hole to dig her way out of. Macfarlane tries a spinning backfist at 1:23. Macfarlane continues to circle and bang, not fearing the counter nor the power of Ducote, digging to the body at her leisure and with pleasure. Anything she wants to throw seems to connect. Ducote keeps coming forward and making it even easier for Macfarlane as she can catch an opponent coming into her range. She throws Ducote to the ground at 4:20 but Ducote manages a reversal with short time left. It doesn’t change the round as far as I’m concerned — it’s still a 10-9 for Macfarlane.

Round 5: All Emily Ducote is showing us at this point is that she has the cardio to go the distance. Other than that she’s got nothing for Macfarlane at this point. Macfarlane is minutes away from becoming the inaugural 125 pound champion. Macfarlane pulls guard looking for a submission and Ducote is going nowhere fast. Macfarlane has her legs all the way around Ducote’s neck. Miragliotta warns both women to work harder. If Ducote moves an inch either way though Macfarlane could easily cinch up a triangle or an armbar. That’s exactly what she does - Ducote taps to the armbar with under 80 seconds left.

Final result: Ilima-Lei Macfarlane wins the title by submission (armbar) at 3:42 in the fifth round .
