Jedrzejczyk vs. Namajunas set for MSG in November

The UFC's return to Madison Square Garden on Nov. 4 will now feature three world championship bouts, as the promotion announced Tuesday that strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk will defend her belt for the sixth time against No. 3-ranked contender Rose Namajunas.

In previously announced title fights, Georges St-Pierre returns to face middleweight champion Michael Bisping in the main event, and bantamweight teammates turned rivals collide as Cody Garbrandt defends his crown against TJ Dillashaw. Tickets go on sale on Friday, Sept. 15.

The Queen of the strawweight division for nearly three years, Poland's Jedrzejczyk has successfully defended her title five times over the likes of Claudia Gadelha, Karolina Kowalkiewicz and Jessica Andrade, earning her the unofficial nickname "Joanna Champion." But former Ultimate Fighter finalist Rose Namajunas has set her sights on the belt, and after wins over Michelle Waterson, Tecia Torres and Paige VanZant, she will get her shot at dethroning one of the most dominant champions in UFC history.
