Joanna: ‘The UFC Would Never Release Me’

Former UFC women’s strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk will be looking to make a comeback as she faces off against her next opponent inside the octagon. With that in mind, the former title holder is not concerned with her place within the roster of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

Joanna Jedrzejczyk is now coming off of a two fight losing streak. The mixed martial artist was dethroned from her undefeated streak and her place as the UFC champion back at UFC 217, in which Rose Namajunas earned a first round TKO victory over the fighter.

Jedrzejczyk locked in an immediate rematch against Namajunas at UFC 223. However, Namajunas earned a unanimous decision victory against the Poland native.

Now Jedrzejczyk is set to face off against Tecia Torres at UFC on FOX 30. The fight will go down July 28 in Calgary, Canda.

Speaking to Polish news source, Jedrzejczyk revealed that she does not believe the UFC would likely cut her from the roster no matter her losing streak.

Check out a translation of Jedrzejczyk’s statement below:

“I decided to stay in the straw division and regain my belt. So it will be. I think that UFC will not release me after ten failures, I send this message to everyone.”
