UFC 174: Tristar’s Valerie Letourneau Replacing Germaine De Randamie
By FCF Staff
UFC 174 has received a change, less than two weeks out from the June 14th card, as the promotion has announced Germaine De Randamie has withdrawn due to injury.
As a result, Tristar bantamweight Valerie Letourneau will step in on short notice to fight Milana Dudieva, who is also making her Octagon debut.
Letourneau (5-3) is coming off a stoppage win over Jordan Moore in April, and is 4-1 in her last five fights. Letourneau also competed on TUF 18, but was defeated in the show’s opening round by Roxanne Modafferi.
Dudieva also fought in April, and scored a submission victory over Daria Chibisova. The Russian fighter is 3-2 in her last 5 contests.
UFC 174 will be hosted by Vancouver’s Roger’s Arena and will feature flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson taking on Ali Bagautinov.
