Coming off a huge win over Rosi Sexton, Joanna Jedrzejczyk has signed to the UFC.
The Polish prospect will take on Brazilian Juliana Lima in what will be the second strawweight fight in the promotion at UFC on Fox 12 card in San Jose, CA July 26. MMA Rocks Poland broke the news Monday.
Undefeated Jedrzejczyk (6-0) got the KO over Sexton at Cage Warriors a few weeks ago. She has defeated some of the best talent in Europe. She had signed to Invicta earlier this year, but it looks like the UFC may have bought out her contract. This will be Jedrzejczyk’s debut at strawweight.
Lima (6-1) is coming off a win over Liliani Trolezi in Brazil last October before being signed to the UFC this past December. She was set to fight at TUF 20 but since she doesn’t speak English too well, they decided to sign her directly to the promotion. Her only loss was by decision to Katja Kankaanpaa in Invicta.
The fight is expected to air on the UFC on Fox prelims, which will air on Fox Sports 1 July 26.
