UFC straw weight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk (14-0) will be facing Rose Namajunas (6-3) for the title at UFC 217. The fight has been targeted since August according to MMAToday and was confirmed by the champ herself on social media through a video on Fox’s ProCast.

UFC 217 is the promotion’s return to Madison Square Garden since the record breaking UFC 205. The event is headlined by the return of Georges St-Pierre who faces current middleweight champion, Michael Bisping for the title. The co-main event features the long awaited bantamweight title fight between current champion Cody Garbrandt (11-0) and number two ranked TJ Dillashaw (15-3). That makes three title fights for UFC 217.

When you come to Madison Square Garden you have to come big. Is this card big enough now?
