Former UFC women’s strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk has voiced her interest in facing Valentina Shevchenko for the vacant UFC women’s flyweight title following rumors of the UFC’s interest in the potential match up. Now the former title holder has a message for any unhappy UFC women’s flyweight competitors that feel the Polish fighter is jumping in line of title contention.
Speaking on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, Jedrzejczyk has come forward with her thoughts on the division.
“I’m so sorry, don’t be jealous. There are not so many dedicated fighters like me and not that many with that big legacy.”
“I am always willing to fight and UFC knows this. I was supposed to take a long break, but I don’t know if that will happen now. Like I said, I am always open to move up and fight for the belt against Shevchenko.”
“There’s a big chance that this happens. If this fight is going to happen it’s going to happen this year.”
