Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Juliana Lima added to UFC on FOX 12


The UFC will crown the first strawweight champion with The Ultimate Fighter 20, but it won’t stop the promotion from matching other strawweight fights before the season.

Joanna Jedrzejczyk, unbeaten in MMA, will take on fellow UFC newcomer Juliana Lima at UFC on FOX 12 in San Jose, Calif., on July 26. Sources close to the situation confirmed the match-up to MMAFighting.com following a report from Groundandpound.

Jedrzejczyk (6-0) earns a shot in the Octagon after scoring a second-round knockout over UFC veteran Roxi Sexton in June. Lima (6-1), removed from the Ultimate Fighter season for not speaking English, enters the UFC after a 68-second TKO win in Brazil.

UFC on FOX 12 takes place at the SAP Center in San Jose and is headlined by a welterweight title eliminator bout between Matt Brown and Robbie Lawler. Anthony Johnson vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira co-headlines the card.
