Holly Holm moves back down to bantamweight, takes on Bethe Correia in Singapore
Singapore – UFC® makes its highly anticipated 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. Tickets to UFC FIGHT NIGHT® SINGAPORE: HOLM vs. CORREIA go on sale Today at 10 a.m. SGT via Sports Hub Tix.
Decorated kickboxer and former bantamweight champion Holly “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holm (10-3-0, fighting out of Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA) will face aggressive Brazilian striker Bethe “Pitbull” Correia (10-2-1, fighting out of Campina Grande, Paraiba Brazil) in a five-round bantamweight showdown. Holm shot to fame when she dethroned dominant mixed martial arts legend “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey. The ‘kick heard around the world’ at UFC 193 was watched by a crowd of over 56,000 and made Holm an instant household name. 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.
