Bellator will crown its first female 125-pound champion at Bellator 186.
Bellator 186 takes place Nov. 3 at Bryce Jordan Center on Penn State’s campus in University Park, Pa. The main card airs on Spike following prelims on MMAjunkie.
Macfarlane won the duo’s first meeting via unanimous decision.
Macfarlane, 27, has fought once since that win. In April at Bellator 178, she submitted Jessica Middleton via first-round armbar. It was her sixth straight victory and fifth career stoppage.
Following the loss to Macfarlane, which halted a four-fight winning streak, Ducote has fought twice for Bellator. The 23-year-old submitted Katy Collins and picked up a decision victory over Middleton.
The UFC will crown its own 125-pound female champion in December with the conclusion of “The Ultimate Fighter 26.” The long-running reality show’s tournament format will determine the inaugural champion of the UFC’s newest female weight class.
