Emily Ducote Replaced Fortino Against Jessica Penne at UFC Long Island
Emily Ducote recently signed with UFC, and now she will replace Brianne Fortino in a fight against Jessica Penne to make her promotional debut at UFC Long Island.
Brianne Fortino has been forced out of her match against Penne on July 16 due to unknown reasons. However, the promotion found a new opponent for Penne in the form of Invicta FC’s strawweight champion Emily Ducote.
Emily is on a three-fight winning streak and is coming off a TKO victory against Alesha Zappitella. Ducote is in red hot form and is determined to start her UFC campaign with a win.
On the other hand, Jessica Penne is a former title challenger and has won her past two fights. She even earned a Performance of the Night bonus in her most recent match for submitting Karolina Kowalkiewicz in the first round at UFC 265.
Both these women are in great form and have great momentum going into their next bout. Therefore, both will try hard to leave the octagon with a victory on July 16 at UFC Long Island.
