Joanna Gets Emotional Following “Thug” Rose Knockout, Cries Backstage After Losing The Belt

Prior to UFC 217, Joanna Jedrzejczyk had not faced a defeat in her mixed martial arts career. The fighter had cultivated a dazzling 14 fight winning streak, with victories over some of the toughest fighters in the mixed martial arts promotion. Still, things simply did not go Jedrzejczyk’s way on Saturday’s main card.

UFC 217 went down on Saturday inside the Madison Square Garden Arena in New York. In one of the three exciting title fights from the night, Joanna Jedrzejczyk went toe-to-toe with tough contender Rose Namajunas.

Namajunas came in as an underdog to many fight fans. That in mind, “Thug” Rose earned a stunning TKO finish over Jedrzejczyk within the first round. With the New York crowd on their feet, Namajunas was crowned the new UFC strawweight champion.

Now Joanna Jedrzejczyk has provided her thoughts on the recent loss in the post-fight interview below. The former champion can be seen in tears, breaking down her post-fight view in the video below.
