Jedrzejczyk and Waterson have verbally agreed to fight on the October 12th card per the report from ESPN.com. As of now, no location assigned yet and we are waiting for the official statement form the UFC.
Jedrzejczyk lost to a unanimous decision against Valentina Shevchenko for the inaugural 125-pound title at UFC 231. Jedrzejczyk has lost three out of her last four fights and will look to get back in the winning circle when she faces Waterson.
Waterson is coming into this fight with a three-fight winning streak which include Cortney Casey, Felice Herrig and Karolina Kowalkiewicz. If she wins against Jedrzejczyk she could be next in line for a title shot.
