Jedrzejczyk (10-0) captured the crown by knocking out inaugural strawweight champion Carla Esparza back in March, and followed that performance with a blistering third-round finish over atomweight import Jessica Penne, marking four straight victories inside the Octagon.

Letourneau (8-3) is also perfect under the ZUFFA banner, racking up three straight wins since crossing over from the regional circuit in late 2014. That includes her unanimous decision romp over Maryna Moroz at UFC Fight Night 74 back in August.
