Bethe Gets Baszler at UFC 176

UFC 176 adds an intriguing battle of female bantamweights...
Fresh from a UFC 172 win over Jessamyn Duke last month, Brazilian bantamweight prospect Bethe "Pitbull" Correia will target another member of the Four Horsewomen when she takes on veteran Shayna Baszler at UFC 176 on August 2.

Correia, 8-0 with two UFC victories, made no secret of her desire to defeat each member of the California fight team led by UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, and now she'll get her chance at STAPLES Center against Baszler, a female fighting pioneer and Ultimate Fighter 18 cast member who will be making her Octagon debut in the summer showdown.

Tickets for UFC 176, which is headlined by the UFC featherweight title bout between Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes, go on sale on June 13.
