UFC officials confirmed today that Canada’s Valerie “Trouble” Letourneau will face Russian standout Milana Dudieva on June 14 at UFC 174: “Johnson vs Bagautinov” in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Letourneau replaces an injured Germaine De Randamie.
What a difference a year makes. Last May, Letourneau (5-3) had hoped to be a part of the historic first ever female cast of The Ultimate Fighter, however a first round submission loss in her elimination bout to Roxanne Modafferi would end that dream. Now, one year later, she makes her UFC debut against Dudieva (10-3) on home soil.
This bout is part of the preliminary card and will be televised live on Fox Sports 1.
