Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently added yet another title fight to its upcoming UFC 217 blockbuster pay-per-view (PPV) event, scheduled for Sat., Nov. 4, 2017 inside Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Jedrzejczyk (14-0) remains perfect in her mixed martial arts (MMA) career, which includes an 8-0 run under the UFC banner. She was last seen turning away bantamweight import Jessica Andrade at UFC 211 in Texas.
A win in “The Big Apple” ties Jedrzejczyk with former 135-pound champion Ronda Rousey for consecutive title defenses at six.
Namajunas (6-3), meanwhile, punched her ticket to a strawweight title shot — literally — by battering Michelle Waterson at UFC on FOX 24 back in April. “Thug” is 4-1 since graduating The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 20 with three finishes.
Fun fight … who ya’ got?
UFC 217 will be headlined by the middleweight title fight pitting Michael Bisping against the returning Georges St-Pierre. In the bantamweight championship co-main event, Cody Garbrandt looks to settle his grudge match with former teammate TJ Dillashaw.
