Joanna Jedrzejczyk will be defending her title against strawweight challenger Jessica Andrade at UFC 211, the champion confirmed today on Fox Sports: Procast.

UFC 211 takes place on May 13, 2017 in Dallas, Texas.

While it’s a confirmation of an already rumoured fight, but should excite fans nonetheless. Jedrzejczyk is a hugely popular champion, and with Andrade offering an exciting and scrappy fighting style, the two should put on a fantastic contest.

Andrade has won three in a row, with her last outing an exciting bout with her having a good showing over Angela Hill.

Jedrzejczyk is undefeated in thirteen MMA fights, and a win over Andrade would be her fifth successful title defence.

It’s also the addition of a second title fight to UFC 211, which is currently headlined by a heavyweight title fight, a rematch between champion Stipe Miocic and former champion Junior Dos Santos.
