A third title fight has been added to UFC 217 as strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk is set to defend her title against Rose Namajunas.

The UFC announced the matchup Tuesday morning.

Namajunas (6-3) is the No. 3-ranked contender at 115 pounds. The 25-year-old submitted Michelle Waterson in April to earn her title shot. Meanwhile, Jedrzejczyk (14-0) defended her belt for a fifth time when she won a unanimous decision over Jessica Andrade at UFC 211 in May.

The event takes place Nov. 4 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. It is scheduled to be headlined by middleweight champion Michael Bisping taking on former welterweight titleholder Georges St-Pierre in his first fight in nearly four years. A bantamweight title bout between champ Cody Garbrandt and challenger T.J. Dillashaw is the co-main event.
