Jedrzejczyk Considers Move To Flyweight
At UFC 223, Joanna Jedrzejczyk would once again fall to Rose Namajunas, as Namajunas retained her strawweight title.
Now, the woman once known as Joanna “Champion,” finds herself on the outside looking in when it comes to championship contention.
In a new interview with MMA NYTT, Jedrzejczyk admitted her next move may be to flyweight, as it would be a healthier decision for her going forward.
“It would definitely be a more healthy solution,” Jedrzejczyk said. “After 15 years in the sport, my metabolism is wearing out.”
“We have some limits – even though I think limits are only in our heads, time goes on,” Jedrzejczyk said. “But I still feel young, my last camp was the best camp in my life.”
“We will see, perhaps I will have one debut fight in flyweight, but getting strawweight belt is definitely still my goal.”
Even with two straight defeats to “Thug Rose,” Jedrzejczyk is not looking to give up her quest to reclaim the 115-pounds title, even it Namajunas is no longer the title holder.
“Will Rose remain champion? I don’t know, we will see. As we saw, she just defended her title for the first time,” Jedrzejczyk said.
“Congratulations, our fight was excellent, and I’m really proud of that. We will see, perhaps we will have a trilogy.
“We should prepare for that.”
