Joanna Calls Herself The Female BMF
Walking out of UFC 244, Joanna Jedrzejczyk was happy for Jorge Masvidal, who became the first BMF titleholder following a stoppage win over Nate Diaz.
Yet, the former strawweight champion is hoping for a similar honor in-line with her reputation inside the Octagon.
“People used to call me violent, savage,” Jedrzjecyzk told the Post. “Jorge [Masvidal] just won the belt – the baddest [expletive] belt. I want to be the female BMF.”
“These [other] girls can make it, they can win the belt, but there’s nobody like Ronda Rousey, [nobody] like me,” Jedrzejczyk said to the South China Morning Post.
“People can doubt me, and they’ll do that forever, but show me a better, cleaner fighter in the UFC or in general. Of course, Amanda Nunes is the GOAT [greatest of all time] right now, but Ronda Rousey had six successful title defenses, me, five. Rose [Namajunas]? One title defense. Jessica [Andrade] couldn’t defend the title.”
