UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs. Hunt UFC Fight Night: Holm vs. Correia UFC Fight Night: Chiesa vs. Lee

UFC Fight Night: Holm vs. Correia (also known as UFC Fight Night 111) was a mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship held on June 17, 2017, at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore.[2][3]

Background[edit]

The event was the second that the promotion has hosted in Singapore, following UFC Fight Night: Saffiedine vs. Lim which was at the Marina Bay Sands in January 2014.[2]

A women's bantamweight bout between former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm and former title challenger Bethe Correia headlined this event.[4]

Although the pairing was never officially announced by the promotion, Alex Caceres was linked to a bout with promotional newcomer Wang Guan at the event.[5] Instead, Caceres faced another newcomer in Rolando Dy.[6]

Jonathan Meunier was expected to face Li Jingliang at the event. However, Meunier's removal from the card was announced on June 6 due to an alleged injury and was replaced by promotional newcomer Frank Camacho.[7]

At the weigh-ins, Carls John de Tomas came in at 131 lbs, five pounds over the flyweight limit of 126 lbs. As a result, he was fined 30% of his purse, which went to Naoki Inoue and their bout proceeded as scheduled at a catchweight.[8]
