What Dana White wants Dana Whie gets. When he sat down with New York Times late last month he said he wanted Rousey and Jedrzejczyk both defending their titles on the same card. That card in question was suppose to be UFC195 but thanks to Lawler and Condit getting scraped Rousey and Holm were brought in as a replacement to headline the UFC193 card in Melbourne Australia.
A card that was already expected to break an all time attendance record just got all the more interesting. Today at the UFC Go big press conference in Vegas it was announced that UFC Strawweight Champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk will be defending her title for the 2nd time against challenger Valerie Letourneau in the co main event.
Jedrzejczyk’s original opponent was suppose to be Claudia Gadelha but due to a thumb injury she sustained in her last fight she’s unable to compete. Both Letourneau and Jedrzejczyk are coming off wins in their last fight. Letourneau who is (8-3) is coming off a Unanimous decision win over Marya Maroz from this last month. As where Jedrzejczyk who is (10-0) is coming off a 3rd round TKO victory against Jessica Penne from June
With this fight added Austrailia looks to be in for a treat. UFC193 will be the first event in the company’s history to have two women’s titles defended on a card. UFC193 takes place November 14th, 2016 from Melboene Australia and live on PPV
