Jessamyn Duke might be one of the members of Ronda Rousey’s exclusive “Four Horsewomen” crew, but she might soon not be a member of the UFC.
Duke lost her second straight scrap inside the octagon, one fight after UFC president Dana White was critical of her reluctance to pull the trigger in a defeat to Bethe Correia. However, on Wednesday, there was a reason why Duke wasn’t able to lay the lumber – at least with her left hand.
Duke broke her left haymaker in the opening ticks against Leslie Smith, which ultimately cost her a TKO loss.
“Prefight interview I said @lesliesmithmma had a brick head & could take a lot of punishment. Karma. #ufcfightnight45 #gunclub” Duke posted on Twitter with the above X-ray.
Duke now owns a 3-2 (1 NC) professional record. She might be granted a reprieve by UFC brass given the injury she suffered against Smith and the fact that she’s buddies with Rousey.
UFC Fight Night 45 took place inside Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
