Julianna Pena vs Milana Dudieva added to Apr. 4 UFC show

Brett Okamoto of ESPN reported this afternoon and the UFC has confirmed that Julianna Pena vs Milana Dudieva has been added to UFC Fight Night 63 Apr. 4 at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA. This will be an afternoon show on Fox Sports 1 in the US and TSN in Canada. Of course the last time we saw Julianna she won TUF 18. Then she blew out her knee during some gym horseplay. I think she's a pretty good fighter but who knows what she will be like post surgery. She may need a couple of fights to get her act together. The one thing I don't like about her is she sometimes has trouble controlling her emotions and that could get her into trouble in the cage. Milana is from Russia and won her UFC debut with a split decision win over Elizabeth Phillips in Macau in August. I actually scored that fight for Elizabeth but the fight was terrible and neither of them deserved to win. Milana admitted afterwards that she was very nervous and would do better next time. I'm not so sure as I have seen some of her other fights. I don't think she's that good. The UFC tried to get Milana to fight Holly Holm in December but I understand Milana got married instead. One interesting thing is Julianna and Elizabeth are teammates. Revenge is always great motivation. Julianna should be the favourite.
