Joanna Jedrzejczyk gets immediate rematch with Rose Namajunas at UFC 223
UFC president Dana White announced the 115-pound title rematch during a news conference on Friday. UFC 223 will take place at Barclays Center.
Namajunas (7-3) upset Jedrzejczyk in shocking fashion at UFC 217 in November.
Fighting out of Denver, Namajunas dropped Jedrzejczyk with a left hook and finished her with punches on the ground. It was the first knockout of Namajunas' career.
Before the loss, Jedrzejczyk (14-1) had defended the title five consecutive times, one shy of Ronda Rousey's all-time record of six in a female division.
Jedrzejczyk is still considered one of the top female fighters in the world.
