UFC on Fox 30 in Canada has gained another top fight now that former strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Tecia Torres have agreed to meet toe to toe in MMA’s greatest proving ground. It has not yet been confirmed, but it is believed this fight will take the main event spot and Jose Aldo vs Jeremy Stephens will occupy the co-main event of the evening. However, a fight between Eddie Alverez and Dustin Poirier could be booked which would knock each fight down a position on the card.
Jedrzejczyk is excited to return to the octagon after losing a close decision to the now strawweight champion Rose Namajunas, and although the former Polish title holder had expressed her desire to move up a weight class, Dana White has confirmed that this fight will take place at 115lbs.

Tecia Torres will also be looking to return to winning ways after losing her previous fight to Jessica Andrade back in February. “The Tiny Tornado” was enjoying a three-fight win streak before losing to the Brazilian, and would very much like to continue the momentum with a win over arguably one of MMA’s most dominant former champions on her journey to the top of the UFC’s strawweight division.
It will be a fantastic fight for fans, with highly skilled stand-up fighting, as I very much doubt this fight will hit the canvass. Who will triumph on the night? will the tiny tornado cause an upset? or will the boogey woman return to winning ways?
