Jedrzejczyk at her ‘best physical condition’ ahead of July 28’s Tecia Torres bout: “JJ Queen is coming, better brace yourself”

Joanna Jedrzejczyk returns to action in a featured bout on July 28’s UFC on FOX 30 main card when she battles Tecia Torres.

Jedrzejczyk feeling at her “best physical condition” ahead of return to the cage.

Jedrzejczyk (14-2) makes her first appearance after suffering back-to-back losses to Rose Namajunas. A devastating first-round knockout in November 2017, losing her strawweight title – then a rematch which saw her lose a unanimous decision. Despite the recent setbacks, the 30-year-old is remaining positive and recently took to her Instagram page to provide fans with an update.

We finished the week with a great circuit training. I’m at my best physical condition, and we have two more weeks to go! JJ Queen is coming and better brace yourself.” she wrote.

Prior to losing two in a row to Namajunas, Jedrzejczyk was one of the most dominant champions of all time in MMA, having captured the UFC strawweight title from Carla Esparza in 2015 and going on to successfully defend it against Jessica Penne, Valerie Letourneau, Claudia Gadelha, Karolina Kowalkiewicz and Jessica Andrade.

  1. we’ll see. I fully expect JJ to win, I’m only concerned with how and the degree of ease/difficulty. if she is renewed and ready this should not be a contest. it should be a beat down. Tecia is highly ranked, nominally the 6th or 7th best in the division, but she keeps this standing by beating unranked (or in the case of Waterson, overly ranked) opponents. she has a 10% career finish rate and one ranked win being over Michelle Waterson, who in turn got her high rank beating PVZ. although tough and the next one down the division ladder, Torres is by far the least dangerous opponent JJ’s had in years.

    not having to prep for 5 rounds vs the most surging contender, not having to carry promotion for the event, JJ should have almost a break here compared to what she’s used to. basically Joanna needs a dominant performance capped with a finish, or she has some serious questions to ask herself about her move to ATT and the rest of her career. a close fight may as well be a loss. Joanna is so stubbornly confident and serious about being champion she drives people to deride her, Tecia is one of those ‘play it safe” fighters who is just happy to be on the roster.
