Rose Namajunas Wants Joanna Jedrzejczyk To Do One Thing To Get A Potential Rematch


UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion Rose Namajunas holds two victories over former title holder Joanna Jedrzejczyk, with those wins coming at UFC 217 and UFC 223.

The former champion would probably like a third shot at Namajunas, but their is one thing Jedrzejczyk must do before it even comes close to happening.

“Unless she’s says I’m the best - publicly!” said Namajunas to TMZ Sports. “Publicly because I already know she knows. You gotta say it to everybody! [Laughs] She knows I’m the best but she won’t admit it to everybody.”

Jedrzejczyk is unlikely to get a third opportunity against Namajunas at this time as the UFC rarely gives a fighter a third shot to defeat someone they have already lost twice to.

Even if Jedrzejczyk does acquire a third opportunity against Namajunas, it is a bout the champion doesn’t seem very interested in having.

“Right now, that fight doesn’t really interest me at the moment,” said Namajunas. “I think I’d be interested to see how she does with somebody else before even entertaining that possibility. At the moment, there’s not much to gain from running that back again.”

Namajunas doesn’t have her next title fight scheduled at this time, while Jedrzejczyk faces Tecia Torres at UFC On Fox 30.
