Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

In the opening fight of UFC Brisbane, the UFC newcomer was able to best the WMMA veteran to earn a closely fought split decision.

Julie Kedzie and Bethe Correia opened up UFC Fight Night 33 with a women's Bantamweight bout. Kedzie entered the fight coming off a loss to Germaine de Randamie in her UFC debut and already on a three-fight losing streak. Correia came into the fight as an injury replacement. She's undefeated in her 6-fight career.

The ladies definitely brought the action in a back and forth 3-founder. Despite Kedzie being the more established fighter, Correia continually brought the fight to her opponent. While Kedzie was able to land some good kicks and punches of her own throughout the fight, it was Correia who landed the more effective strikes, more consistently. It was a close fight that sent the judges to a split decision
