The UFC Hall Of Fame Inducts Former Strawweight Champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk

This past Saturday, there was in a break in the action at UFC 299 in Miami, as the organization announced the induction of Joanna Jedrzejczyk to the UFC Hall of Fame.

Jedrzejczyk, who was in attendance at the Kaseya Center on Saturday, retired less than two years ago following her second straight loss to Zhang Weili at UFC 275: Teixeira vs. Procházka. Beginning her time with the company in 2014, Jedrzejczyk debuted with a unanimous decision win, then continued on to achieve 8 consecutive UFC victories.

Securing the strawweight title in 2015 with a powerful second round TKO victory over Carla Esparza, Jedrzejczyk went on to defend the throne for five straight bouts. The dominant champion even moved up in weight to take a shot at the vacant flyweight belt versus Valentina Shevchenko. While unsuccessful in achieving a title in a second weight division, she went the full 25-minute distance with Shevchenko, who held the title for four years following their match.

The latest inductee to the UFC Hall of Fame took in the moment of the announcement surrounded by friends and fellow fighters, adding an extra degree of excitement to an entertaining event in Miami.
