Former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm will headline the 17 June UFC Fight Night: Singapore event at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

The 35-year-old shot to fame when she dethroned Ronda Rousey by knocking her out with a head kick in 2015 at UFC 193.

American Holm won an impressive 10 fights in a row, with seven knockout finishes, in 2015. She will be facing Brazilian Bethe Correia in a five-round bantamweight showdown.
