The UFC has made it official: the next season of The Ultimate Fighter will feature as coaches strawweight champ Joanna Jedrzeczyk and top challenger Claudia Gadelha.
April 20 is when the first episode will air, and the two ladies will clash in the cage on July 8 on an event on FOX Sports 1.
In case you forgot, Jedrzeczyk and Gadelha have clashed before, with the Polish striker taking the close decision. That win propelled her to a shot at the title, and, well, the rest is history. But prior to their initial meeting, it was assumed that the Brazilian was treading the path to championship gold.
This will finally be Gadelha’s chance to set things right.
Or, she’ll just get her ass kicked, like everyone else.
