Macfarlane is also a strong advocate and presence in her community where she has created her own scholarship fund — The Ilimanator Inaugural Scholarship — which helps young native girls learn about indigenous culture and studies at Intertribal Youth Programs around the world.
“I think it’s really important for other natives to know their culture and know their roots and keep their identity strong,” she said in an interview with
Macfarlane makes her first title defense against Alejandra Lara (7-1) in the main event of Bellator 201 on June 29, 2018, in Temecula, Calif. Entering the bout, she is feeling confident and excited, in part because of some extra promo from Snoop Dogg.
“I don’t feel pressured,” said MacFarlane, via MMA Weekly. “I feel excited. It’s awesome to see people posting the flyers and you see my face in the background. The other day Snoop Dogg posted the flyer on (social media) because he is rooting for Joey Davis, so I got my face, indirectly, on Snoop Dogg’s page. It just makes everything more exciting.”
