The Letourneau-Jedrzejczyk bout was announced by the UFC at a Las Vegas event Friday.

Lawler (26-10, 1 NC) is riding a four fight winning streak in his career resurgence and will be looking to defend his UFC title for the second time since defeating Rory MacDonald at UFC 189. Jedrzejczyk puts her belt on the line against Valerie Letourneau. The 28-year-old hard-hitter from Poland has since defended her crown by stopping Jessica Penne in the third round in June. A broken hand, concussion and two shoulder surgeries kept her on the shelf. With 194 seemingly full, UFC on FOX in Orlando could be the most viable option, as Nunes trains out of American Top Team in Florida and Tate has competed regularly on FOX shows.
