Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Juliana Carneiro Lima set for UFC on Fox 12


MMA Junkie is reporting that a strawweight fight between Joanna Jedrzejczyk (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) and Juliana Carneiro Lima (6-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) has been added to UFC on FOX 12.

Jedrzejczyk, who could certainly use a few more strategically placed vowels in her name, most recently picked up a big victory over women’s MMA pioneer Rosi Sexton. Jedrzejczyk has only been a pro for two years, and is already making a name for herself within the division.

Carneiro, an Invicta FC veteran hasn’t fought since last October with a victory over LIlliani Trolezi, will look to help kick off the women’s strawweight division with a bang.

UFC on Fox 12 will take place on July 26 from the SAP Center in San Jose, California, and will feature a title eliminator bout between welterweights Matt Brown and Robbie Lawler. The event will air on Fox, following preliminary bouts on Fox Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.
