Former UFC strawweight champion, Joanna Jedrzejczyk is not too happy with others calling her out for good or worse.
Joanna said, “She’s good, but the truth is they offered me Weili Zhang three times before that fight and the thing is, she needed me, Okay, she’s the champ now so it might look like she never needed me to become someone. Why are they calling me out? Because they know I can bring them to a different level. Maybe they can be lucky and win against former UFC champion, a dominant champion, which I was. Get better money, get better exposure. The thing is, there is a new UFC Performance Institute in China, so they probably needed a good fight and they just gave the title fight to this Chinese chick.”
Whereas Zhang believes that Joanna is the one in need now.
The former strawweight was not happy with the thought and took it further saying, “You all should ask her why she was calling me out,” Jedrzejczyk continued. “These girls think they can talk when they have the strap, they talk whatever shit they want to talk when you are losing, Look at how many of them wanted to call me out when I lost to Rose, they were like, ‘Now we can beat Joanna because she lost’. When I was a dominant champion, they were trying to get the belt, but nobody could keep the pace with me when they faced me. They can talk whatever they want, I’m too classy and too serious for all that bullshit.”
Zhang and Andrade’s fight created quite a hype since Zhang knocked Andrade out in 42 seconds and won the fight with grace.
Joanna is scheduled to fight Michelle Waterson at the UFC Tampa event next month.
