Joanna Jedrzejczyk: Just plain violent

Since the announcement of her fight against Carla Esparza, I’ve been interested in finding out just who Joanna Jedrzejczyk is and why she deserves a shot at the womens Strawweight Title.

On the 12th of December 2014, Carla Esparza officially captured the UFC Women’s Strawweight Championship Title by defeating Rose Namajunas in the finale of Season 20 of The Ultimate Fighter. She will be defending her title for the first time against Women’s Strawweight standout Joanna Jedrzejczyk.

The more and more I read and watch about Joanna Jedrzejczyk, the more I become excited for this fight. I am always a sucker for awesome Muay Thai fighters in MMA and Joanna Jedrzejczyk is no exception. She started her fighting career in Muay Thai and is a WKN World Champion, J Girls Champion, WBKF Champion, WKF European Champion and the WMC Champion. In her amateur career, she was the 5-time IFMA Muay Thai amateur world champion and the 4-time IFMA Muay Thai European Champion.

Her perfect and deadly striking technique is on full display in the MMA cage especially in her most recent fights against Rosi Sexton, Julianna Lima and even her fight against Claudia Gadelha (full fight videos below).
