Joanna Jedrzejczyk Didn’t Suffer Broken Foot At UFC Fight Night Tampa

Former UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk scored a unanimous decision win over Michelle Waterson in the main event of UFC Fight Night Tampa

A victorious Jedrzejczyk had a badly swollen foot after the fight, but the fighter says she didn’t suffer a broken foot on that night.

“It’s good news,” Jedrzejczyk told MMA Fighting. “Both feet are very swollen but it’s good. I’m happy it’s not broken. I don’t need surgery. I will be back faster so I can fight faster.”

Despite the good news, one thing Jedrzejczyk needs to do is provide a medical clearance to the Florida State Athletic Commission (FSAC) before a return to action can happen.

Jedrzejczyk says that when she does step back into the Octagon, a title shot is going to be coming the former champion’s way.

“I wouldn’t have signed this agreement for the fight with Michelle Waterson if my next fight wasn’t going to be for the belt. My next is going to be for the belt,” Jedrzejczyk said. “If they make me wait, I will wait but I sent a strong message with this fight.”
