CONFIRMED: Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Rose Namajunas Set For UFC 217

CONFIRMED: Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Rose Namajunas Set For UFC 217”

The UFC has added another title fight to the UFC 217 PPV (pay-per-view) card.

Jedrzejczyk (14-0) will be attempting to make history in this fight as if she wins at the event then she will tie former UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey's record of consecutive title defenses (six) after victories over several title contenders such as Jessica Andrade, Karolina Kowalkiewicz, Claudia Gadelha, Valerie Letourneau and Jessica Penne.

Namajunas will fight with a belt on the line for the second time in her UFC career.

The strawweight champ confirmed that she will defend her title against Namajunas in NY on November 4 on Fox Sports' twitter on Tuesday.

The 4 November event will be headlined by Michael Bisping's middleweight title defence versus the returning George Saint-Pierre, with Cody Garbrandt also doing battle with T.J. Dillashaw for the bantamweight title.

Her flawless 14-0 record might indicate a lack of any real challenge to some, but in her last few outings, Jedrzejczyk has been forced to overcome a number of pretty hard tests, with a pair of showdowns with her heated rival Claudia Gadelha and her UFC 205 win over Karolina Kowalkiewicz sitting amongst her most gutsy performances.

A women's strawweight title fight between Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Rose Namajunas is set to go down at UFC 217.

Jedrzejczyk announced the bout via the FOX Sports ProCast and company officials confirmed the bout on the UFC Europe Twitter page Wednesday.
