TUF 18: Jessamyn Duke vs. Raquel Pennington preview

The new season of The Ultimate Fighter season 18 comes our way tonight and it has been hyped up as the most intense fight of the season. The fight on tonight’s show will come in the women’s bantamweight division between Team Rousey’s Jessamyn Duke and Raquel Pennington of Team Tate.

Duke comes in to the show with an undefeated record, while Pennington has an even 3-3 mark in her professional career.

Pennington has the edge standing up and with the power in her hands, but you can’t count out the range and length of Duke. If Duke is able to keep the distance and work Pennington with her jab, she will open things up to take the fight to the mat where it will be trouble for Pennington.

If the fight goes to the ground, Duke has some slick submission skills thanks to her work with Eddie Bravo, and she will have the clear edge.

We expect an exciting back-and-forth battle on tonight’s episode, with Duke ultimately having her hand raised in victory by way of submission. Be sure to tune in.
