It’s no secret that Joanna Jedrzejczyk is hungry for revenge.
It’s been three years since Joanna Jedrzejczyk won the UFC’s women’s strawweight championship. In recognition of the big anniversary, she wrote on Instagram, “I achieved my goals, plans and dreams 3 years ago when I became the UFC strawweight champion of the world. In 3.5 weeks, I’m going to write another chapter of my story, when I win that title back. Bigger goals, plans, and even bigger dreams and ambitions. All this has been established on hard work, determination, and devotion.”

Joanna held onto the strawweight strap for years, reigning supreme through five title defenses until current strawweight champ Rose Namajunas came along for the upset at UFC 217 last November.
It may be several weeks before we know whether JJ’s confidence holds much weight, but let’s assume she lands the win and regains her title. What next? A trilogy fight with Rose is highly unlikely, and a third go-round with Claudia Gadelha isn’t too probable either. A rematch against Andrade? Maybe. The bottom line is that another loss for Joanna may stir things up a bit, and a win may not bring her anything terribly refreshing – other than a catalyst to move to the 125-pound division.
Where do you think Jedrzejczyk’s career is heading?
