Joanna Jedrzejczyk Vows to Recapture Title
It’s time to move forward. And that’s exactly what the top-ranked women’s strawweight fighter, Joanna Jedrzejczyk, did after suffering a brutal loss to Rose Namajunas for the second consecutive time in a 25-minute war at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. Now, Jedrzejczyk’s heart is set on her next bout.
Tecia Torres. So what this makes fight interesting and appealing to fans? Well, it will be Jedrzejczyk’s first non-title fight in the UFC since 2014. Interesting? Sure. They square-off on July 28 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on Fox 30.
The only thing running through the Polish-born striker’s mind is an opportunity for another title shot. So? If she defeats Torres, maybe, her wish will come true. Not maybe, she’s 100 percent certain.
“I believe that I am going to get the title shot after this fight,” Jedrzejczyk told the The MMA Hour. She added, “We’ll see what’s going to happen. I said that I could have 10 more fights before I get the title shot, because I went through this in 2014 and ‘15. I want this belt and I will get this belt back. Mark my words.” Time will tell.
A Look Back
For Jedrzejczyk, she was on a roll last year. But then her streak (14-0) was snapped. How so? In November, Namajunas ousted her by a first-round knockout to win the strawweight title, then, it was an unanimous decision the second-go-around. But wait…Don’t you remember? The judges had Namajunas winning four rounds to one. And? However, the onlookers and even some media outlets thought Jedrzejczyk won the heated fight. Either way, Jedrzejczyk only looked ahead.
Right now, Jedrzejczyk started her camp in her native hometown, and after, she’ll travel to her home away from home. Which is? Coconut Creek, Fla. With that said, she knows she has some unfinished business left.
A fight against Namajunas for a third time.
It’s likely that this duo won’t see each other for quite some time; But Jedrzejczyk is determined “sooner than later” to get back this belt. We shall see.
What’s Next In Store?
A flyweight debut? You can say that again. Jedrzejczyk mentioned that a flyweight could be on the table for her next contested match. Not to mention, if she made the move up, it would be beneficial to her.
But the only thing Jedrzejczyk is craving at the moment is to get back in the ring, so she can put the belt around her waist again. It’s about time.
