After being unable to claim the inaugural Bellator women’s flyweight title last year, Emily Ducote will return to the Bellator cage on Friday night in Thackerville, Oklahoma as she will meet Kristina Williams on the main card broadcast of Bellator 195 on the Paramount Network.

Ducote (6-3) was submitted by Ilima-Lei MacFarlane in the fifth round at Bellator 186 and both of her defeats in the Bellator cage have come against MacFarlane. When she steps into the cage on Friday night, it will be a familar scene for her as this will be her fourth Bellator fight to take place at the WinStar World Casino in Thackerville.

I had an opportunity to talk with Ducote recently about her matchup on Friday at Bellator 195 and our complete conversation is below. During our conversation, we spoke about the positive lessons she learned from the lost against MacFarlane, why she fights, and her matchup against Williams.
