Fil-Am Boxer Ana Julaton Loses Via Split Decision In Her Bellator Debut

Fil-Am boxer Ana Julaton stumbled on her Bellator debut last night at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut, United States. Although she fought her heart out against Lisa Blaine, she fell short in clinching the victory. Blaine took home the bacon with a split-decision win. Two of the ringside judges scored the bout 29-28 in favor of Blaine. The third judge scored the bout 29-28 for Julaton. With the victory, Blaine improves her professional record to 2 wins and no losses. On the other hand, Julaton drops to 2 wins and 3 losses.

The two fighters started out slow on the first round as they felt each other out. The exchanges were pretty even until the last minute when Blaine scored a takedown and landed a couple of elbows. Blaine also attempted a guillotine choke but was unsuccessful. The takedown, ground and pound, and choke attempt earned Blaine the first round.

Julaton was more aggressive on the second round. She threw more kicks and spinning attempts. She also attempted a choke. During a scramble on the ground with Julaton on top, she was able to land strikes to end the round. The round was close but it was Julaton's round.

The third round was all Blaine as she once again took the fight to the mat and worked on her ground and pound. Julaton was able to make it back to her feet during the last minute but it was already too late. Blaine left her behind in the scorecards.

Prior to her Bellator debut, Julaton fought in the Asia-based MMA promotion, One Championship. She racked up 2 wins and 2 losses there. Although she fights in MMA, Julaton is still a very active boxer. As a boxer, she currently holds a record of 14 wins, 4 losses, and 3 draws.
