UFC 193: Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs Valerie Letourneau title fight announced

UFC just announced that Joanna Jedrzejczyk will defend her strawweight title on the 11/15 show at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne against Valerie Letourneau.

This will be the semi-mainevent to the Ronda Rousey vs. Holly Holm.

UFC wanted to do the obvious good booking of putting Joanna, who has a lot of charisma but her name isn't that well known, on the same show as Rousey, particuarly since people who are more open to women fights will be the audience watching.
