UFC makes its return to Singapore on Saturday, June 17 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium with a dynamic bantamweight bout between former champion Holly Holm and No.10 Bethe Correia headlining the card.
Decorated kickboxer and former bantamweight champion Holly “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holm (10-3) will face aggressive Brazilian striker Bethe “Pitbull” Correia (10-2-1) in a five-round bantamweight showdown.
Holm shot to fame when she dethroned dominant mixed martial arts legend “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey at UFC 193 in front of a crowd of over 56,000.
After winning an impressive 10 straight fights with seven knockout finishes through 2015, Holm will look to bring back the heat in Singapore.
Meanwhile, Correia, a veteran who fell to Rousey when she challenged for the title in August 2015, returns to the Octagon following a majority draw against Marion Reneau in March. A well rounded fighter who is absolutely not afraid to stand and trade, Correia’s bout against Jessamyn Duke ended with a significant strike differential of over 100 to 55.
