The UFC made a strawweight fight official today via their Twitter. Tecia Torres will take on Joanna Jedrzejczyk on July 28 at UFC on FOX 30.
Tecia Torres (10-2) was knocking on the door of a title shot until she ran into Jessica Andrade. However, despite her last loss, Torres has shown that she has what it takes to be at the top of the strawweight division. The Tiny Tornado even holds a win over current UFC strawweight champ, Rose Namajunas.
Joanna Jedrzejczyk (14-2) has dropped her last two fights to Rose Namajunas, but she is intent on getting her title back. She just lost to Rose three weeks ago and clearly, she wants to get right back in there.
This will be an intriguing matchup between strawweights with possible #1 contender implications.
