Former UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk isn’t going anywhere. For those MMA fans who think Joanna Jedrzejczyk is no more a TOP contender for the UFC belt, the champ is eager to contend and refute her skeptics.
Joanna Jedrzejczyk is coming off probably the best battle of her whole career at UFC 248, yet many fans and the MMA community believed the previous UFC ladies’ strawweight champion could resign thinking about that battle finished tragically to current champion Weili Zhang.
The misfortune to Zhang finished one more push for UFC gold for Jedrzejczyk. Since losing her title in sensational style to Rose Namajunas back at UFC 217 about three years prior, the Polish hotshot has gone 0-3 in UFC title battles. This incorporates a rematch with Namajunas, a climb in weight against UFC ladies’ flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko, and her ongoing split-choice misfortune to Zhang in what stays 2020’s Fight of the Year.
In the months paving the way to the battle against Weili Zhang, Joanna Jedrzejzyk said that she wanted to resign while being at the top of her game and as the ruling UFC strawweight champion of the world.
Joanna Jedrzejczyk: Champion once again ?
Former UFC women’s strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk said that she isn’t retiring anytime soon, contrary to reports. Speaking to the South China Morning Post, Joanna Jedrzejczyk revealed how her desire to compete again will lead to her goal of becoming the UFC women’s strawweight champion again.
In a recent interview, she made the following statements:
“I will be fighting. I can’t stop. I won’t stop. I was thinking, Maybe I’ll do one, two, three more fights, but why not fight every year? Even if I do it once a year or twice a year, why not do it? I love it. It doesn’t matter if I keep winning or losing or keep fighting for the title or not, I just love it.”
“Being the champ again. I just want to give big fights to the fans, to the people, because I know my value is very big, I just want people to see that we can never stop, that we can’t give up, that we should fight for our goals and dreams.”
“I lost my last fight, but I feel I will rock the next fight even better. The last camp was special, but I know that I can do even better this time, and I will. I can’t wait. I’m excited. [There will be] lots of pain, lots of tears, lots of blood, sacrificing myself, but it’s worth it to step into the UFC Octagon and fight for the belt.”
“[I want to be] a Hall of Famer, One of the best. There’s me, Ronda Rousey, Amanda Nunes and Cris Cyborg. It’s the four of us who accomplished so much in this sport. I always wanted to be remembered, and I will be remembered.”
