Jedrzejczyk (14-1) lost the belt to Namajunas at November’s UFC 217, finding herself victim of a brutal first-round knockout. The 30-year-old was one of the organization’s most dominant champions of all time prior to the loss, having won the belt from Carla Esparza in 2015 and then going on to defend it against Jessica Penne, Valerie Letourneau, Claudia Gadelha, Karolina Kowalkiewicz and Jessica Andrade.
The former champion is very confident she will be back on top in April and decided to issue an update for her fans earlier today via Instagram.
“I’ve never given up. I’m still here, keeping both feet on the ground. I know who I am. I’m the best in the world and in 4 weeks I’m going to get what belongs to me!”
UFC 223 takes place on Saturday April 7 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, United States. The main card featuring Namajunas vs. Jedrzejczyk 2 will be aired live on pay-per-view from 10pm EST.
