Cover picture for the articleJuliana Velasquez remains the Bellator flyweight champion, though she overcame her first title defense against Denise Kielholtz at Bellator 262 by the skin of her teeth. Velasquez (12-0) eked out a razor-thin split decision over Kielholtz (6-3) in a striking-heavy affair Friday night in the main event of Bellator 262, which took place at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. After vowing all week to defeat Kielholtz — a world-class kickboxer and the current Bellator Kickboxing women’s flyweight champion — on the feet, Velasquez stayed true to her word and utilized a long jab and slick knees to bloody Kielholtz’s left eye and do just enough to leave the cage with her title intact.
