Bethe Correia

Long-time bantamweight contender Bethe Correia remains a UFC fighter despite reports to the contrary. Correia was apparently released by the promotion back in August after picking up just one win in her last five fights.

According to AG Fight, the Brazilian has been granted one more fight with the UFC. Correia is set to face Yanan Wu on December 5, on a UFC Fight Night card set to be headlined by a middleweight bout between top contenders Darren Till and Jack Hermansson.  

Correia took to social media to confirm she will be fighting in December for the final time, she wrote.

“Only a fighter knows the time to stop and follow other paths… Only a fighter and their allies know to tell apart the lies from the truth from what the media puts out. Yes! This will be my last fight and it could not be at any event other than the one and only @UFC Countless lies have been told out there, but I remained centered! I know who I am and I know my story. I have a strong and daring personality that has been the essence of my career and has added many rilvaries that strengthened Women’s MMA. What I leave behind me is my legacy of a fighter who has a bold posture, presentation and unique celebration style in the fighting world. A personality that makes many curious to know more about me. It’s not by chance that #betheeffect is out there. Love me or hate me, in the end everybody wanted to stop to watch me fight. I reached Pay Per View record numbers that back then had not been reached for many years. I have fought the very best and I always made the news. I am certain that I have left my mark and now it’s time to let a new generation arise. And I know that I have taught both good and bad lessons. My very last fight will be at the best in the whole world… Where I dreamed and seeked to fight. This December I will be in the UFC octagon. I will cherish every moment of it and I know I’ll miss it! I’m incredibly thankful to the UFC for the recognition of my career and history, they have never denied me a request.”

Bethe Correia and Evan Dunham are the latest names to be released by the UFC.

The news was confirmed by MMA Fighting on Wednesday as they cited UFC officials.

Correia, Dunham Released Following Losing Runs

Correia joined the UFC in 2013 as an undefeated women’s bantamweight and enjoyed three wins in a row over the likes of Julia Kedzie, Jessamyn Duke and Shayna Bazler.

That winning run earned her a shot at Ronda Rousey’s 135-pound title only to result in her suffering her first professional loss following a first-round knockout.

The Brazilian would go on to win just twice in her next seven outings with her most recent performance being a unanimous decision defeat to Sweden’s Pannie Kianzad last month. She has also lost three of her last four outings.

Dunham, meanwhile, last competed at UFC 250 in June where he suffered a first-round submission defeat to Herbert Burns. That setback put him on a three-fight losing streak with his last win coming in September 2016 when he outpointed Rick Glenn.

The 38-year-old had been competing for the Las Vegas-based promotion since 2009 and would compile an overall record of 11-9 with one no contest in the UFC.

UFC Mexico City will feature the return of former women’s bantamweight title challenger Bethe Correia.

According to a report from Combate’s Raphael Marinho, Correia will be facing Sijara Eubanks on the card:

Correia is currently on a two-fight losing streak and hasn’t won a fight since 2016. Her last two fights were defeats to Holly Holm and Irene Aldana, where she was finished in both in the third round. Eubanks just had a two-fight win streak snapped by Aspen Ladd in May.

She initially had back-to-back wins over Lauren Murphy and Roxanne Modafferi. Eubanks missed weight her last time out at flyweight, so she’ll jump back up to 135 pounds to take on Correia. The UFC has yet to officially announced the bout for the card, but we’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
