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 (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.
UFC on FOX 30 takes place on July 28 from the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The main card featuring Jedrzejczyk vs. Torres will be aired live on Fox Sports 1 from 8pm EST.
