Joanna Jedrzejczyk is considering competing one last time in the UFC octagon despite announcing her retirement from MMA earlier this year.
Jedrzejczyk (16-5-0) lost to Zhang Weili at the UFC 275 event this past June by way of a brutal second-round knockout. After the defeat, the former strawweight champion took to the microphone to announce her retirement from competition.
The 35-year-old is currently in New York ahead of this Saturday’s UFC 281 event in which she’ll be in attendance. On Thursday she took part in media interviews with reporters and discussed plans for potentially one more fight.
“Sometimes, I do feel I should give one more fight. I should do the last dance for fans because we had no time. I was not prepared, and they were not prepared to say goodbye. So, like I said, it was the best camp in my fighting career. The last camp was the best camp, and I was in such good shape.” she said.
Jedrzejczyk is considered one of the greatest UFC champions in history. She knocked out Carla Esparza to capture the strawweight title in 2015, going on to defend it a total of five times before losing the belt to Rose Namajunas.
