Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Jessica Andrade reportedly in the works for UFC 211
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, FOX Sports reported that the fight is in fact being explored. The report cites that the bout would be the co-main event of UFC 211 in Dallas, Texas, should it come to fruition. 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 should these two meet come May.
We will have more on this potential bout as it unfolds.
