After original opponent Aleksandra Albu was forced to drop out due to injury, Julie Kedzie was forced to sit, wait, and post memes on her Twitter while waiting for a new opponent. Well, the time has come, and Kedzie will now be taking on Brazilian prospect Bethe Correia.
UFC officials confirmed the change in opponent yesterday.
Julie “Fireball” Kedzie (16-12) is the pioneering woman at Jackson’s MMA. Active since 2004, Kedzie is known for her fearless, ovaries-to-the-wall style that has entertained even the likes of UFC President Dana White. Currently on a 3 fight losing skid, Kedzie will be looking to turn things around with a win over Correia. Will she be able to get the duke over the game Brazilian?
Bethe “Pitbull” Correia (6-0), trains with Bellator’s Patricke and Patricio Freire at Pitbull Brothers gym in Natal, Brazil. The 30 year old has yet to fight outside of Brazil, but has notched 5 decisions and 1 TKO in her fights to date. “Pitbull” will be looking to make a splash with her first fight abroad, and for the UFC. Will she be able to do so against “Fireball?”
