Joanna Jedrzejczyk Still Wants The Strawweights To Bow Down To Her


Former UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk came up short in her rematch with title holder Rose Namajunas at UFC 223.

Despite losing the rematch, a confident Jedrzejczyk still wants the rest of the division to bow down to her.

“You can see the other female strawweights fighting, and c’mon,” she said after the event. “They cannot compare themselves to me. They are all are only jealous and talking too much all the time. I’m telling them, bow down. I’m the queen.”

Since Jedrzejczyk has now suffered two defeats to the current champion, it is unlikely that she would get another opportunity at the gold as long as Namajunas is holding the strap.

Jedrzejczyk is interested in seeing how Namajunas is walking after the punishment she took in the UFC 223 co-main event.

“Fourteen hours of weight cut, dying,” she said. “You can imagine how my body felt in the first fight. But I gave everything I had this time. Let’s see how (Namajunas is) going to walk tomorrow.”

When Jedrzejczyk does return to action inside of the Octagon, it would be the first time she is competing in a non-title fight since defeating Claudia Gadelha at UFC On Fox 13.
