Valerie Letourneau no longer with UFC

bjpenndotcom - February 16, 2017

Longtime UFC women’s straight fighter Valerie Letournaeu has been on a bit of skid lately, going 0-3 over the course of the past year and a half as she had a 4-fight win streak snapped by Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 193 in a failed bid at the UFC women’s strawweight title. Following that, Letourneau made the move to flyweight for a ‘UFC Fight Night: Ottawa’ scrap with Joanne Calderwood, where she lost a one-sided fight where she was TKOd in the final round. Most recently, Letourneau dropped a split decision to UFC newcomer Vivaiane Pereira at UFC 206 in a catchweight bout after she was unable to make the contracted 116 pounds.
