Liz Carmouche did what Liz Carmouche does. She bought ANOTHER victory and additional cemented herself as among the best on the planet. She bought a win by submission towards badass and former contestant on The Final Fighter, DeAnna Bennett. Bennett got here in driving a pleasant streak of wins however this ended up being meaningless. Carmouche was in a position to do no matter she wished, at any time when she wished. She ended up getting the submission victory in spherical 4 and retained the flyweight belt. As for what’s subsequent for Carmouche, that is most likely one of many hardest questions for the Bellator matchmakers. The more than likely reply nevertheless can be the winner of the upcoming bout between Ilima-Lei Macfarlane and Kana Watanabe. Between the 2, Macfarlane can be a brand new problem for Carmouche which I believe can be refreshing for followers against a doable rematch with Watanabe which resulted in a knockout solely 35 seconds into the combat. I believe Macfalane brings an fascinating problem and together with her preventing out of San Diego, it may arrange an fascinating occasion again in California or Arizona as soon as once more for the promotion. No matter who we see Carmouche combat, I’m completely satisfied she discovered a terrific house in Bellator and has develop into the star she deserved to be.
