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.
Watch this! Lisa Blaine vs Tammy Worrick at Premier FC 23 in June 
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!

We understand that Ana is certainly not taking this fight for granted eventhough her opponent may not be the most experienced. In her recent interview, Ana acknowledged that Irina is strong but she also noted that there are aspects of Irina’s style that she can move in on.

Fast, solid striking technique
1.    What was your thought about the upcoming fight against Irina Mazepa?
It was the fight that was supposed to happen last year and she wasn’t to pull it off because of an injury down when I had to fight in Dubai. That was when Ann Osman stepped in. So I mean, it was a fight that was ready to be made and I’m glad it was happening in Manila. I am looking forward to this fight, I’m pumped!
2.    Irina Mazepa debuted impressively with a first round KO of Ann Osman. What do you think about that fight?
Irina Mazepa is a powerful striker for sure. To see what she did to Osman in Malaysia in front of a sold-out hometown crowd was spectacular and proved Mazepa can fight and has no pressure as the visitor. But even when she won the fight, my heart didn’t skip a beat. I mean I was looking for it anyhow, she has really good game.
3.    Did you learn about Mazepa watching that fight?
I know that she’s strong, she’s experienced in the stand-up but I also know too that she’s limited in certain areas and I see that as an advantage on my side.
4.    What have you been working on since your last fight?
I’ve stayed busy at at Bishop Gorman, training four times a week to integrate grappling techniques to my overall game. I worked hard with my coach, Ricky Lundell, who has helped me improve my ground game. I’m got to credit a lot to my team, and my coach is super organised, and he knows which buttons to push to make me want to work.
5.    What are your plans after this fight against Irina Mazepa?
I got a couple fights left with ONE Championship and I’m looking forward in finishing off with some really, really homerun knockout performances. Like when I take care of Irina, I wanna call Ann Osman like you know, it’s up to the play. I really finish your job and I was going in and continue with our job and then let’s get it on.
Quotes from Ana Julaton’s coach, Ricky Lundell
I don’t think her opponent know what’s coming for because what they saw a year ago is not what they’re gonna see now. I mean, the quickness to the shots, the ability to take somebody down, the control aspect as well as being able to land submissions and ground-and-pound.
I mean now this is the entirely different fighter, it’s not just a boxer out there that has a little bit of understanding of the ground. This is a world class boxer who’s been working on world class takedowns and submissions abilities so this is gonna be a different fight. It’s gonna be exciting to watch this to come into fruition finally.
