Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk will settle her longstanding score with division No. 1 contender Claudia Gadelha in the main event of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 23 Finale on FOX Sports 1 later tonight (Fri., July 8, 2016) inside MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Jedrzejczyk (11-0) took a split decision from the Brazilian in late 2014, then went on to capture the 115-pound crown from Carla Esparza the following May. Since then, “Joanna Champion” made a pair of successful title defenses against Jessica Penne and Valerie Letourneau.
Gadelha (13-1), meanwhile, has been on a mission to prove she won her first go-round with Jedrzejczyk, the only loss on her professional record. Injuries, however, limited her ability to compete on a regular basis. “Claudinha” was last seen knocking around World Series of Fighting (WSOF) import Jessica Aguilar back in August.
