Australia will be getting a second major women’s title match for the UFC’s stadium show in Melbourne, Australia.

Dana White confirmed Friday that Joanna Jedrzejczyk will defend her strawweight title against Valerie Letourneau at UFC 193 on November 15th. The fight will serve as the co-main event to the bantamweight title fight between champion Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm.

Jedrzejczyk (10-0) would the title earlier this year and defeated Jessica Penne by TKO in her first title defense. The champ was sidelined due to a hand injury the past few months. It was expected the champ would face Claudia Gadleha in a rematch of their 2014 outing, but Gadleha is still sidelined with a hand injury of her own.

Letourneau (8-3) is undefeated in the UFC and is 2-0 at strawweight. She defeated Maryna Moroz last month, giving the Ukrainian her first ever loss.

The match will air on pay-per-view November 15th.
