Not only did The Ultimate Fighter 18 Team Rousey member Jessamyn Duke suffer her second consecutive loss at UFC Fight Night 45 on Wednesday, she also broke her left hand in the loss to Leslie Smith.

Smith hurt Duke with punches and dropped her with devastating hooks to the body. It’s unclear whether Duke suffered the break hitting Smith or if it was caused by blocking Smith’s kicks.

Duke is now 1-2 in the UFC while Smith snapped a two-fight losing streak with the first-round finish.

    hope they keep her around for at least one more. she hasn’t gotten any easy fights and still has a lot of growing to do. whether she stays or goes back to invicta, i’ll tune in.
