Duke vs. Phillips Booked for UFC Chicago


After back to back losses, Jessamyn Duke is ready to get her career back on track as she takes on Elizabeth Phillips at UFC on Fox July 25th. MMA Fighting broke the news Thursday.

Duke (3-2) has won her first three pro fights at Invicta before heading into TUF 18. She lost to Raquel Pennington on the show in what was the “Fight of the Season”. Duke would win her official UFC debut over Peggy Morgan. She lost to current title challenger Bethe Correia by decision, and lost by TKO to Leslie Smith in her last outing.

Phillips (4-3) won four straight before entering the UFC. She has since lost two close split decisions. She is a teammate of UFC fight Juliana Pena.

The fight will most likely air on Fox Sports 1.
