This is the biggest fight in the brief UFC history of this division. These two met in December of 2014 and Jedrzejczyk won a razor-close split decision. The two were very evenly matched and put on a great fight. Since then, Jedrzejczyk has won the UFC title and defended three times, using her speed and striking ability to get past her opponents. Gadelha responded to the loss with a decision win over Jessica Aguilar last August.

Both fighters are like pit bulls, just constantly looking to push the pace and be aggressive. Jedrzejczyk has the striking advantage while Gadelha has the grappling edge. It will be interesting to see who handles the potential five rounds better. Gadelha is fighting in a five-round fight for the first time, so she may not have the cardio to go in the later rounds. However, Jedrzejczyk is likely going to be made to work from Gadelha’s pressure with her grappling. Jedrzejczyk will be seeking the KO, but Gadelha has proven she’s tough to hit. Gadelha feels she was robbed in the first fight and that has motivated her for two years. Titles have been changing hands often in the UFC lately, I look for another one to change today as Gadelha finds a way to submit the champ tonight.
