Claudia Gadelha and Joanna Jędrzejczyk Planned for December


The winner of the inaugural UFC strawweight title won’t have to wait long to find out who her first challenger is.

MMA News Poland is reporting a title eliminator match between Claudia Gadelha and Joanna Jędrzejczyk will go down at UFC on Fox 13 in Phoenix, AZ December 13, one day after the TUF 20 finale.

Gadelha (12-0) won her UFC debut back in July with an unanimous decision win over Tina Lahdemak. The InvictaFC vet also handed Ayaka Hamasaki her first professional loss. Gadelha was supposed to face TUF 20 competitor and former InvictaFC champion Carla Esparza this past December, but was hospitalized the night before the fight.

Jędrzejczyk (7-0) also won her UFC debut, this time over Juliana Lima in July. The Cage Warriors vet had a notable win over former UFC fighter Rosi Sexton by knockout.

The fight will be a part of the preliminary card and will air on Fox Sports 1.
