Following her punishing win over Angela Hill at UFC Fight Night 104 in Houston, Jessica Andrade was said to be next in line to face UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk, according to UFC president Dana White.
Today it was announced that the fight is, in fact, happening. Despite Joanna recently denying the earlier reports, Jedrzejczyk vs. Andrade will be the co-main event of UFC 211 in Dallas, Texas. Headlined by UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic defending his title against Junior dos Santos, UFC 211 takes place May 13th from the American Airlines Center.
Joanna sits at 13-0, having successfully defended the strawweight title 4 times, going the distance in 3 of them.
Andrade is 16-5, having won 3 straight. Her pressing style could make for quite a slugfest when these two meet come May.
There are only 2 bouts on the card so far, but UFC 211 in Dallas is shaping up to be one hell of an event.
