A women’s bantamweight division attraction is headlining UFC Fight Night 111 as former women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm is taking on Bethe Correia.
Holm (10-3-0) is entering the fight while riding a three fight losing streak, dropping fights to former women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate, Valentina Shevchenko and UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion Germaine De Randamie. Holm defeated Ronda Rousey to win the women’s bantamweight title at UFC 193, but would lose it to Miesha Tate at UFC 196. Holm also fought for the UFC Women’s Featherweight Title, losing a controversial decision to Germaine De Randamie at UFC 208.
Correia (10-2-1) has won just one of her last four fights, defeating Jessica Eye and fighting Marion Reneau to a draw, while also dropping fights to Ronda Rousey and Raquel Pennington. Correia has previously challenged for the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Title, losing to then champion Ronda Rousey at UFC 190. Correia will be headlining only her second ever UFC event, as the last time she headlined a fight was against Ronda Rousey at UFC 190.
UFC Fight Night 111 takes place on Saturday, June 17 from the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore with Holly Holm and Bethe Correia headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event.
