A new women's bout has been added to the upcoming UFC Fight Night card taking place in Atlantic City, NJ on July 16 when former Ultimate Fighter hopeful Jessamyn Duke takes on Leslie Smith.
UFC officials confirmed the fight on Tuesday.
Duke (3-1, 1 NC) was a member of Ronda Rousey's team during season 18 of The Ultimate fighter, and following her stint on the reality show she continued to train with the women's bantamweight champion and her team based in California. Unfortunately, Duke fell to defeat in her last fight to Brazilian Bethe Correia, but now looks to get back on track when she returns this July.
Meanwhile, Smith (6-5-1) will make her second appearance in the UFC after stepping in on short notice for her debut where she lost a unanimous decision to former Strikeforce women's champion Sarah Kaufman.
Training out of the Cesar Gracie fight team, Smith works with a who's who of top MMA fighters including the Diaz brothers as well as top ranked lightweight contender Gilbert Melendez.
UFC Fight Night in Atlantic City takes place at the Revel Hotel and Casino on July 16.
