    Joanna Jedrzejczyk has her sights firmly set on reclaiming the UFC strawweight belt that she held for over two years. After putting on a striking masterclass against Carla Ezparza to win the 115-pound title at UFC 185 in March 2015, Jedrzejczyk successfully defended her title five times, with wins over the likes of Karolina Kowalkiewicz and Jessica Andrade.

    At UFC 217, the Pole was dethroned, suffering her first professional MMA loss in the process when Rose Namajunas knocked her out in the first round. Now with a rematch between the two set for UFC 223 on April 7th, Jedrzejczyk spoke to Polsat Sport about her upcoming fight.

    Following her loss to Namajunas, Jedrzejczyk expressed her frustration towards her nutrition team, Perfecting Athletes, who she felt had a big part to play in her defeat.

    “Many people asked me if I change coaches, club ... My answer was ‘no’ because my coaches did their best to be in the best possible shape. The doctor, who had a big impact on how I felt 30 hours before the fight, failed. People who are not in sports, in which you need to watch this weight, do not know what it’s eating. It often has negative effects on our health and even life. I am asking for patience, just like I have to wait for the day when I will receive a straw weight belt.”

    or you could accept reponsiblity for your own shortcomings and work on them to improve yourself for the rematch.i see a minor ronda situation in the making.obviously ronda is much more mentally weak but she never learned from her mistakes or accepted blame either

    Using the term doctor in this day and age of anti doping is an interesting choice or a poor translation.

    Wow, how did she 180 from one of my favourite fighters to this.

    No one gives a shit about your excuses JJ, only your performance. Shut up and fight.

    she may want to focus a little more on avoiding left hooks, she could've been in great enough shape to do a triathlon that night & it wouldn't have mattered
