Jędrzejczyk is the only fighter to hand Gadelha the two defeats of her MMA career.

Facing “Claudinha” is the resurging Cortney Casey. The Sanchez BJJ fighter started her UFC stint with a string of defeats to Joanne Calderwood and Seo Hee Ham. “Cast Iron” Casey turned things around in her favor with back-to-back victories over Cristina Stanciu and Randa Markos.

Currently ranked number fourteen in the promotional rankings, Cortney Casey will get the biggest fight of her career as she takes on the number one contender in Gadelha.

Ryan Bader and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira headline the card which will be held at the Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil this November 19, 2016. Bader is coming into this fight as a replacement for the injured Alexander Gustafsson.
