Joanna Teases Move Up To Flyweight Following Second “Thug” Rose Defeat

Former women’s UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk is now coming off of a two fight losing streak to reigning champion Rose Namajunas. With that in mind, Jedrzejczyk is not ruling out a possible fight inside the heavier flyweight division.

Speaking to MMANYTT, Joanna Jedrzejczyk revealed that she may attempt a fight in the larger weight class.

“It would definitely be a more healthy solution. After 15 years in the sport, my metabolism is wearing out. We have some limits – even though I think limits are only in our heads, time goes on. But I still feel young, my last camp was the best camp in my life.”

“We will see, perhaps I will have one debut fight in flyweight, but getting strawweight belt is definitely still my goal. Many people ask me about the trilogy, as I said, I don’t know. I don’t know if Rose will still be the champion. I still feel hunger to fight the best, to reach the highest trophies, as I felt for 15 years of my career. So it’s my intention to fight for the UFC belt again.”
