Bellator MMA Women’s Featherweight World Champion!


Our very own Jewel entered the Bellator 174 cage on March 3rd to make history and become the first Bellator MMA Women’s Featherweight World Champion! Julia set the tempo for the fight at weigh-ins the day before when she came face to face with her opponent Marloes Coenen to declare war.

Julia set history on many fronts on Friday night. Not only is she the first Bellator MMA women’s featherweight champion, but she is the first Canadian to enter the Bellator cage for a championship belt and the first Canadian to win a Bellator belt!

Jules dominated the fight from round 1 when she brought Coenen to the mat and demonstrated her superior grappling skills. Keeping her up against fence, Jules stayed on top of Coenen and limited her movement and her guard. Jules continued to dominate in the 2nd and 3rd rounds of the fight, throwing huge punches while keeping Coenen pinned to the ground. In the 4th round of the fight, Jules again brought Coenen to the ground, moving from side control into mount to rain down heavy punches on Coenen. Coenen was left dazed after referee John McCarthy stepped in to end the fight since Coenen was unable to defend or answer Jules’ lightening strike punches.

This victory was the 8th straight win for Jules and has established her as one of the top MMA fighters in the world!

March 3rd marked the day that one of Jules childhood dreams came true. After training countless hours, working on her boxing, muay thai, and grappling skills, cross-training in various disciplines to hone her craft, healing from and working through injuries, Jules showed the world that anything is possible and that faith, discipline, and integrity are the foundation of success.

Jules is a role model to many people within the community. As a person who is positive, kind hearted, determined, and strong in mind, body, and soul, she consistently empowers everyone she meets to be the best they can be and achieve their dreams by recognizing and breaking down artificial barriers. She has shown us that anything is possible. Thank you Jules! We’re incredibly proud of you and so happy to call you our Champion!
