Mentioning that Ilima-Lei Macfarlane is the Bellator Flyweight champion, or being familiar with her MMA career, is barely scratching the surface of who Ilima is. Ilima, in fact, is such an incredible human being that her MMA career is just one little piece of the puzzle. Even if you couldn't care less about MMA, please check out Ilima. I promise you won't regret it.
Today, we chat about the weirdness of entry level MMA, her strange path to an athletic career, traveling around the world, Lakota Sun Dances, ayahuasca, environmental activism in Hawaii, heyoka dreams, 'reading' people, romantic relationships, Justen Hamilton's research, being addicted to terrible relationships, traveling to Italy, and much more.
