To gain another shot at becoming UFC strawweight champion, Rose Namajunas will have to go through Karolina Kowalkiewicz.

The bout was announced by ESPN as part of the UFC 201 lineup Monday night.

Namajunas (5-2) picked up a decision victory over Tecia Torres earlier this year, her third straight since a loss to Carla Esparza in the finals of The Ultimate Fighter. She also defeated Paige VanZant in 2015.

Kowalkiewicz is a perfect 9-0 in her career, including wins over Randa Markos and Heather Jo Clark since signing with the UFC.
