The coaches for The Ultimate Fighter 23 were officially announced on Sunday during the UFC Fight Night 81 broadcast. UFC women’s strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk said that she was likely going to be one of the coaches recently and she in fact set to be a coach against former opponent Claudia Gadelha.

Jedrzejczyk and Gadelha fought back in December 2014 with Jedrzejczyk being awarded a close split decision. The two are set to rematch at the show Finale on July 8 in Las Vegas, Nevada, which is also the day before UFC 200.

TUF 23 will feature female strawweights and male light heavyweight fighters and will debut on April 20, on FOX Sports 1.
