When Joanna Jedrzejczyk was the UFC’s women’s strawweight champion, it was widely assumed she had as much fighting spirit as anyone in the world.
But now that she’s without the title, and on a quest to reclaim it next week, the suspicion is we’re about to find out just how much fighting spirit she really has.
Jedrzejczyk (14-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC) lost the 115-pound title at UFC 217 in November when Rose Namajunas (7-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC) stunned her, and much of the MMA world, with a first-round knockout. In nine days, she has a chance to get the belt back in a rematch at UFC 223.
UFC 223 will take place April 7 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. Jedrzejczyk vs. Namajunas will co-headlines th pay-per-view main card following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
Ahead of the rematch, Jedrzejczyk broke down ust what the term “fighting spirit” means to her, and where else in her life she sees it on display.
