Claudia Gadelha vs Joanna Jedrzejczyk Set For UFC on FOX 13
The UFC has added a women’s strawweight bout to UFC on FOX 13, as Claudia Gadelha will step into the Octagon to face Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
Claudia Gadelha, who hails from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, boasts an undefeated record of 12-0 and won her UFC debut over Tina Lahdemaki, back at UFC Fight Night 45.
Gadelha fights out of the Nova Uniao camp that also has current UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo, and former UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao.
Joanna Jedrzejczyk, who hails from Olsztyn, Poland, also has an undefeated record, being 7-0. Jedrzejczyk also was victorious in her UFC debut, when she defeated Juliana Lima, back at UFC on FOX 12.
A win for either of these ladies could put them in a good spot to possibly face the winner of ‘The Ultimate Fighter 20’, which will crown the inaugural UFC women’s strawweight champion.
UFC on FOX 13 takes place at the US Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona, on December 13th, 2014.
