Joanna Champion Hints That She’s Moving Up In Weight For Another Belt

Undefeated UFC female strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk has never even come close to losing an MMA fight.

She’s been so dominant during her UFC run, she’s on the cusp of breaking Ronda Rousey’s record as she recycles through the division’s top contenders once more.

Next on Joanna’s list is “Thug” Rose Namajunas. Rose is coming off an impressive and dominant performance over Michelle Waterson, and poses a new and viable threat to Joanna’s reign.

Much like Conor McGregor, and with the UFC’s new 125 pound female division, the 115 pound champion takes to her instagram and hints that it might be time to move up and get that second division belt.

Here’s her subtle hint:

“Who wants to see me became a two division champ? #JJChamp #JJChamp #strawweightqueen #ufc217”

The reigning champion also discussed moving up in weight on UFC Tonight.

“I’m very excited that the UFC made this decision to bring the new division,” Jedrzejczyk said. “I was looking at the 125 division, but it was at that time when I had such big problems with making weight, with making 115. But that time, I didn’t work with Perfecting Athletes. Right now I feel great. I put on weight. I feel strong. I feel healthy. And I make my weight easy. I can fight at 115, but maybe next year I will make this decision to move up and I will, of course, defend both titles.”

“I love Ronda Rousey,” Joanna said. “We have a very good relationship, and like I said so many times, she has done so much for this sport, for the UFC and not only for the female fighters. Of course, it’s all about winning the fight, defending the title and about the records. It’s going to be nice that I will tie Ronda Rousey’s record after I win against Rose Namajunas. But I’m looking forward, because I want to defend my strawweight belt in 2018. And then I will see. Maybe I will move up.”

Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Rose Namajunas goes down on the pay-per-view portion of UFC 217. UFC 217 goes down from the Madison Square Garden on Nov. 4.
