Jedrzejczyk vs Letourneau title fight added to UFC 193

The Melbourne UFC card has had a title fight added to the event with UFC women’s strawweight title holder Joanna Jedrzejczyk to defend her belt against Valerie Letourneau.

The bout which, was announced today by UFC officials, will be added to the UFC 193 card at Etihad Stadium on November 15 with UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey headlining against Holly Holm.

Coming from Poland, Jedrzejczyk is undefeated in her UFC tenure which includes two title fights. The entertaining striker last fought back in June where she successfully defended her title to move to 10-0 as a professional.

Canadian Valerie Letourneau is fresh off a unanimous decision win over Maryn Moroz last month on the UFC Fight Night 74 card. The win took her UFC record to 3-0 and overall to 8-3.

Started Martial Arts training after watching Mr Miyagi and Daniel-son in Karate Kid back in 1987. By the time MMA arrived many years later, I was hooked. Coverage of local MMA was via scarce posts on forums like the Underground and Sherdog. I embarked on covering the sport in 2002 and since then have written thousands of articles for both print and online media, before branching out and starting Fight News Australia in 2010. Outside the site, I dream of riding in an F1 car.
