Joanna Jedrzejczyk is currently gearing up for her next title defense, a rematch with the woman who pushed her more than any other fighter inside the Octagon, Claudia Gadelha.

The pair first met at UFC on FOX 13 back in 2014 where Jedrzejczyk was given the nod on a split decision win. Jedrzejczyk went on to win the UFC women’s strawweight championship and has since defended the belt twice.

The UFC recently concluded the filming of The Ultimate Fighter 23, which saw Jedrzejczyk and Gadelha coaching opposite one another. According to UFC President Dana White, the pair apparently got into a brawl on the last day of filming.

Ahead of their rematch at the TUF 23 finale on July 8th, Jedrzejczyk took time to train with pound for pound king Jon Jones, and former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm at the JacksonWink MMA Academy in New Mexico.

Jones captured the moment on Twitter:
