Before the battle: UFC Fight Night 111

Before The Battle

We are back at it on this 71st edition of Before the battle. BloodyElbow’s Nick Baldwin, MMAFighting’s Jed Meshew, and MMASucka’s Wesley Riddle discuss their predictions for UFC Fight Night 111, taking place in the early Saturday morning, from Singapore. In the main event, former UFC bantamweight champion Holly Holm will face-off against former title challenger Bethe Correia.

After suffering three straight losses, two with a title on the line, Holm is hoping to earn her first victory since November of 2015. Holm had been undefeated up until her loss to Miesha Tate in 2016, having seven of her ten wins come by knockout.

Correia had success at the start of her MMA career, starting off 9-0 until losing by knockout, in an August 2015, in a title fight against Ronda Rousey. Her last three bouts in the UFC resulted in a decision loss, a decision victory, and a draw in her recent fight against Marion Reneau.

The co-main event from UFC Fight Night 111 will see #8 ranked veteran Andrei Arlovski, and #13 ranked Marcin Tybura battle in the heavyweight division.
