UFC 172 adds Jessamyn Duke vs. Bethe Correia

The Ultimate Fighter season 18 alum Jessamyn Duke will be returning to the octagon for the first time since the TUF 18 Finale, after being matched up with Brazilian bantamweight Bethe Correia.

Duke vs. Correia will take place on the UFC 172 fight card in Baltimore, Md. on April 26, according to MMAFighting.com.

After an incredible fight against Raquel Pennington on TUF, Duke became a fan favorite. She has continued training with women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey since the show wrapped and she will be looking to keep her unbeaten record intact.

Correia was able to defeat women’s mixed martial arts pioneer Julie Kedzie in her UFC debut, as she advanced her pro record to 7-0.

UFC 172 will take place at the Baltimore Arena, with a light heavyweight title fight between Jon Jones and Glover Teixeira serving as the main event.

Here is a look at the current fight card for UFC 172:

  • Jon Jones vs. Glover Teixeira for the light heavyweight title
  • Jake Ellenberger vs. Tarec Saffiedine
  • Yancy Medeiros vs. Joe Ellenberger
  • Jessamyn Duke vs. Bethe Correia
  • Max Holloway vs. Andre Fili
