Bellator MMA's two-day extravaganza has a pair of new fights.

Ilima MacFarlane will take on Emily Ducote in a battle of flyweights prospects and Chidi Njokuani meets Andre Fialho at Bellator 167 on Dec. 3 at WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Okla. It is the second card at the venue in as many fights. Both events will air on Spike.

MacFarlane (4-0) has won all three of her Bellator bouts, most recently a second-round submission over Rebecca Ruth in June. The 26-year-old San Diego resident is closing in on a chance at Bellator's inaugural women's 125-pound belt. Ducote (4-1) has won four straight, including a second-round submission over Kenya Miranda da Silva in September. The 23-year-old Oklahoma native has not lost since her pro debut last year.

Njokuani (15-4, 1 NC) is 2-0 in Bellator and has not lost a bout since 2013. The Dallas native is unbeaten in his last seven fights. Njokuani, 27, is the younger brother of UFC veteran Anthony Njokuani. Fialho (7-0), an undefeated Portuguese prospect, has won both of his Bellator fights by first-round knockout.

Bellator 167 is headlined by a featherweight bout between former champion Patrick Curran and John Teixeira. One night earlier, Eduardo Dantas will defend his bantamweight title in a rematch with Joe Warren at Bellator 166. Also on that first day, top prospect A.J. McKee meets Emmanuel Sanchez.
