After not making it past the opening round of The Ultimate Fighter 18, Valerie Letourneau is getting her shot in the octagon according to an article on the ProFC website.

Letourneau will fill in for the injured Germaine de Randamie against fellow octagon debuter Milena Dudieva at UFC 174 June 14. Letourneau (5-3) lost to Roxanne Modafferi in a “get in the house” fight on TUF 18. Since then she got a 34 second TKO win over Jordan Moore a few weeks ago. She is currently training at American Top Team with InvictaFC’s Ediane Gomes, and TUF 20 participant Tecia Torres.

Dudieva (10-3) has back to back submission wins to her credit, getting 6 overall in her career. This will be the Russian’s US debut.

The fight is expected to be a part of the preliminary card, which will air on Fox Sports 1 June 14.
