Reports began circulating today that Joanna Jedrzejczyk was in talks to defend her strawweight title at UFC 211 against Jessica Andrade. Set in Dallas, Texas, the May 13th card features a heavyweight rematch as UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic defends his belt against Junior dos Santos.
FOX Sports confirmed an earlier report by Polish sports site Sport.pl, regarding the bout. While Dana White has said that Andrade is next in line following her win against Angela Hill at UFC Fight Night 104, there has not been any movement on a fight since.
Moments ago, however, Joanna took to her facebook page to dispel the report as simply a rumor, stating that she’s not fighting in Dallas. For what it’s worth, she only addressed that part of the story and made no mention of whether or not something with Andrade is being discussed.
We will have more on this story as details become available.
