Team Rousey teammates, Jessamyn Duke and Peggy Morgan, will battle inside the Octagon tomorrow night for a spot on the UFC roster. This will be a fight between the two tallest castmates on the show; Duke is 5’11, while Morgan is 6’1. Both Morgan and Duke lost in the elimination round of the tournament.
Duke lost to Raquel Pennington by Unanimous Decision in an incredible fight in the elimination round that will more than likely be named the fight of the season. After the show wrapped up, Duke moved to California to train with Ronda Rousey full time. Tomorrow night, she will get her opportunity to show off her skills and improvements. Expect a much improved Duke come tomorrow night.
Morgan lost Sarah Moras by submission in the elimination round of the tournament. Has she improved enough since her time on the show to get the win tomorrow night, or will Jessamyn Duke steal the spotlight?
