Fresh off losing her own title, and her rematch to try and regain it, Joanna Jedrzjeczyk knows a thing or two about losing UFC gold.
But unlike the promotion’s inaguaral female flyweight champion Nicco Montano, Joanna went out on her shield after a lengthy championship reign.
Nicco never got to defend her belt, and after a lengthy inactivity stint, came in overweight for her first title fight and never made it to the scales.
In a new interview with MMAJunkie.com, Joanna explained what she thinks of this fake champ:
“I think it was fair. For me, it’s a shame. Us as fighters, athletes and champions to not be on weight. We need real and dedicated fighters and champions in the UFC. The UFC is the best organization in the world. There’s no space and time for (expletive) like this. It was a very hard decision, very tough decision. I believe that you must take this job very serious. You must be 100 percent in. Weight cuts are not easy, are not nice. But you must be on weight when you have to be.”
Do you agree?
