Joanna Jedrzejczyk has a ways to go before her reign is viewed in the same fashion as Ronda Rousey’s, but the strawweight champ has been drawing more comparisons thanks to her last two outings.
In March, Jedrzejczyk drew widespread praise for the vicious manner in which she took the strawweight crown from Carla Esparza (a KO win in round two). Then, in her first title defense, the vaunted striker badly outgunned Jessica Penne on the feet, and then finished the fight in round three.
Jedrzejczyk will look to defend the belt for a second time at UFC 193 on November 15th, when she takes on Valerie Letourneau. In advance of the Melbourne hosted bout, the UFC has posted Jedrzejczyk’s stoppage win over Penne. You can watch it below.
