Joanna: ‘I Will Be More Cocky, And More Arrogant In Rematch Against Rose’

Joanna Jedrzejczyk was on a tear through the world of mixed martial arts. Prior to UFC 217, the fighter was the reigning and undefeated strawweight champion of the Ultimate Fighting Championhship (UFC). With 14 total victories on her undefeated professional record, the mixed martial artist was quickly becoming one of the UFC’s most dominant competitors. However, everything changed in New York.

For the UFC’s second appearance inside the Madison Square Garden Arena in New York, the promotion hosted UFC 217. On the night’s PPV main card, Rose Namajunas put on a dominant display over Jedrzejczyk. The fighter scored a title earning TKO victory in the first round. Some fight fans criticized Jedrzejczyk as being cocky leading into the match up. That being said, Jedrzejczyk has no intention of being modest in her hopeful rematch against Namajunas.

Addressing the media in China, as seen in the video below, Jedrzejczyk opened up about her hopeful rematch against Namajunas.

“People are saying that I was cocky and that is why I lost.” former champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk said in Shanghai. “I just want to tell you that I will be more cocky. I will be more arrogant. I will be more loud, because I know my body. I’m bigger than the night at UFC 217. Mistakes happen to everyone.”
