Fight Theater: Jessamyn Duke vs. Raquel Pennington

Every season of “The Ultimate Fighter” there is something that stands out whether it’s a rivalry, a particular prank or an amazing finish. There have even been fights that were so amazing, they have people talking for weeks after it aired. This is one of those fights.

Jessamyn Duke (Team Rousey) took on Raquel Pennington (Team Tate) in the quarterfinals of the “TUF 18” women’s bantamweight tournament. Spoilers aside – though let’s be honest this fight is over a year old -Duke vs. Pennington turned out to be one of the best – if no the best – in the show’s history.

Both Duke and Pennington are in the UFC and it’s only a matter of time before we see them battle each other again.
