Holly Holm to fight Bethe Correia June 17 in Singapore

UFC fighter Holly Holm is headed back to 135 pounds after an unsuccessful bid for the UFC’s 145-pound championship.

Holm (10-3) is scheduled to face Bethe Correia in the main event of UFC Fight Night on June 17 in Singapore, the UFC announced.

Holm has not won a fight since shocking Ronda Rousey for the UFC’s bantamweight championship in November 2015.

Holm lost the title to Miesha Tate at UFC 196 in March 2016, then dropped a unanimous decision to Germaine de Randamie for the UFC’s inaugural featherweight title in February.

The UFC Fight Night event will be held inside Singapore Indoor Stadium.
