UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk has revealed she is due to start training camp this week and will find out the next challenger for her belt in the next few days. She says she hasn’t yet heard regarding Michelle Waterson, following rumors the pair would fight at UFC 210.
On Saturday, Jedrzejczyk talked about the topic, while attending “UFC on FOX: Shevchenko vs. Pena” at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.
“There’s a rumor that I’m going to fight Michelle Waterson on (UFC) 210, but no, it’s not true,” Jedrzejczyk said. “I was surprised because I’ve got so many phone calls, so many messages because I was super busy for the last three day. I saw the information, and I even called Sean (Shelby) last night and I was like, ‘What is going on?’ But no, I’m not going to fight Michelle Waterson yet. Not at 210. I’m still waiting for the date and name of my opponent.”
Jedrzejczyk went on to reveal she will start her training camp this week and will learn who her next opponent is in the next few days.
Of course, if Jedrzejczyk is still waiting to find out her opponent, it could still be Waterson and perhaps she just hasn’t been told yet.
Jedrzejczyk is undefeated with 13 wins. Her last five fights have all been for a UFC title. She has UFC victories over Juliana Lima, Claudia Gadelha, Carla Esparza, Jessica Penna, Valerie Letourneau, and Karolina Kowalkiewicz.
Who do you think should be Jedrzejczyk’s next opponent?
