Alejandra Lara: BELLATOR Women’s Flyweight:
“I feel like for this entire camp I was recovering my confidence and rediscovering who I am. Now I feel I’m at this point of my career where I feel more than ever stronger both physically and mentally. I definitely feel that I’m not afraid of anyone or anything and I’m very ready for this.”
“My last fight was close, but I was actually dehydrated since the first round. I didn’t feel my body and was out of energy. I know that everybody knew that I could win the fight, but this is a moment to learn to not leave anything to the judges and to show that I have the potential to be a champion.”
“Definitely my last loss made me realize that I was making some mistakes that are from a beginner, and I’m not a beginner anymore. So I want to take all of those things under my control. Now I feel it’s the moment to demonstrate that I’m ready for this. That I have what I need to be at the top.”
