Baszler is looking to get back on the winning track and give the Four Horsewomen a much needed boost. Baszler has trained for the fight with her long time coach, UFC heavyweight Josh Barnett. Going back to her roots which could play a factor for refocusing mentally and physically.
The undefeated Corriea is favored coming into the match.
