Joanna Jedrzejczyk will get her wish, as the former UFC strawweight champion meets Valentina Shevchenko for the vacant UFC flyweight title at UFC 231.
The bout is set for December 8 from the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.
Shevchenko (15-3) was to meet Nicco Montano for the title recently, but Montano pulled out. UFC officials stripped her of the belt without ever defending it.
A former bantamweight title contender, Shevchenko is a multiple time Muay Thai champion and holds a win over Holly Holm.
Jedrzejczyk (15-2) lost the UFC strawweight title to Rose Namajunas and a subsequent rematch. She is coming off a decision win over Tecia Torres.
