Joanna Is “Too Classy” For “Chinese Chick” Zhang
Joanna Jedrzejczyk, who has lost her last three attempts to win a world title in the UFC, has admitted to ducking new UFC strawweight champion, Weili Zhang .
“She’s good, but the truth is they offered me Weili Zhang three times before that fight and the thing is, she needed me,” Jedrzejczyk said of the burgeoning Chinese star on the EuroBash podcast.
“Okay, she’s the champ now so it might look like she never needed me to become someone. Why are they calling me out? Because they know I can bring them to a different level. Maybe they can be lucky and win against former UFC champion, a dominant champion, which I was. Get better money, get better exposure. The thing is, there is a new UFC Performance Institute in China, so they probably needed a good fight and they just gave the title fight to this Chinese chick.”
“You all should ask her why she was calling me out,” Jedrzejczyk said of the current champion calling her out after knocking out Jessica Andrade last month in China.
“These girls think they can talk when they have the strap, they talk whatever s**t they want to talk when you are losing, Look at how many of them wanted to call me out when I lost to Rose, they were like, ‘Now we can beat Joanna because she lost’. When I was a dominant champion, they were trying to get the belt, but nobody could keep the pace with me when they faced me. They can talk whatever they want, I’m too classy and too serious for all that bulls**t.”
