According to a report by ESPN, two new female fights have been added to the upcoming UFC 205 card from New York.

UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk will defend her title against Karolina Kowalkiewicz and former champion Miesha Tate returns against Raquel Pennington.

Set for November 12 from Madison Square Garden, the card marks the first UFC event in New York since the state legalized MMA.

The report also states that the strawweight title fight will not be the main event that evening.

Both Jedrzejczyk and Kowalkiewicz are unbeaten in their careers and previously fought as amateurs in the finals of a tournament. Jedrzejczyk won that via submission.

Tate will be returning to action for the first time since losing the UFC female bantamweight belt to Amanda Nunes at UFC 200 in July.
