According to an Aug. 27 post from Bluegrass MMA, Jessamyn "The Gun" Duke will be taking pictures, signing autographs and giving away some items to fight fans on Sept. 4 at Buffalo Wild Wings in Richmond, Kentucky, as part of a viewing party for the premier of The Ultimate Fighter 18.
Duke, 27, is a standout bantamweight who most recently competed under the Invicta FC banner. Sporting an undefeated professional record, "The Gun" holds wins over Marciea Allen and Suzie Montero, along with amateur victories over Sarah Cook, Elizabeth Phillips and others.
The show, which airs on FOX Sports 1, will start at 10 p.m. Buffalo Wild Wings is located at 2139 Lantern Ridge Dr., Ste 100, in Richmond, Kentucky.
It's going to be an action-packed night, as Intimidation Clothing -- one of Duke's key sponsors -- will be on hand selling shirts.
Tickets will also be sold for upcoming Kentucky MMA cards, including Bluegrass Brawl 9 and Hardrock MMA. There will be some ticket giveaways, along with shirts up for grabs from Bangtown Fightwear.
Duke is one of just a handful of Kentucky-based fighters to make it to the big show, with Junie Browning and Josh Ferguson the only others from "The Bluegrass State" to earn the opportunity to compete inside the world-famous Octagon.
After competing under the Tuff-N-Uff banner and Invicta FC umbrella, Duke became part of the UFC's first ever "TUF" season to include female fighters.
“This season of The Ultimate Fighter was monumental, as we had women as coaches and competitors – fighting and living together with the men – for the first time ever,” UFC president Dana White said. “Obviously the fierce rivalry between Ronda and Miesha is going to get everyone’s attention, but it doesn’t take away from their dedication and success as coaches and the level of talent this season. One of the things that always makes The Ultimate Fighter great is the fights, and this season continues to deliver. Since we added the women’s division earlier this year, they’ve been putting on awesome fights, and the streak continues on the show, giving the men some serious competition and setting up some Fight of the Night-worthy battles.”
