22 Aug Joanna Jedrzejczyk Vs. Claudia Gadelha Planned For UFC 195
UFC 195 could be getting its second Womens title fight as UFC president Dana White told Los Angeles Times it was likely Joanna Jedrzejczyk will defend her women’s strawweight title against Claudia Gadelha in the co-main event January. 2 in Las Vegas,
Jedrzejczyk’s co-manager Tiago Okamura also confirmed with MMAFighting.com that the UFC wants Jedrzejczyk at UFC 195, but nothing has been made official yet. White said the fight hinges on Gadelha’s recovery from a broken finger.
The undefeated Jedrzejczyk (10-0) has won all four of her fights in the UFC, including a second-round TKO of Carla Esparza to win the title at UFC 185 in March. The Poland native is coming off a third-round TKO over Jessica Penne in June.
Gadelha (13-1) is coming off a dominant unanimous decision win over Jessica Aguilar at UFC 190 earlier this month. Her lone career loss came against Jedrzejczyk last year. The Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt is 2-1 in the UFC and has been thought of as one of the top two or three women’s 115-pounders in the world for a few years.
UFC 195 is headlined by by Ronda Rousey putting her women’s bantamweight belt on the line against Holly Holm, no other bouts have yet been confirmed though White also said he’d like Miesha Tate to meet Amanda Nunes that night.
