The first match between Weila Zhang and Joanna Jędrzejczyk, which took place in March 2020, was one of the best fights in the history of women’s MMA. “Bleacher Report”, as well as Internet users in the poll of the “Fighters Only” magazine, recognized this fight as the best in 2020. By the decision of the judges, the Chinese woman was the winner, but both players gained recognition from the whole MMA world. Both were also so battered that they ended up in the hospital.
Jędrzejczyk plans to return. He wants a big rematch
Since then, that is for almost two years, Joanna Jędrzejczyk has not appeared in the octagon. But he has been planning such a return for a long time, and it is immediately at the highest possible level. In an interview with Kanał Sportowy, the Polish woman revealed that she wanted to fight Weili Zhang in a rematch in the near future.
“Everyone thinks I’m not in the UFC anymore.” I am, I just dropped out of the ranking, because I haven’t fought for a dozen or so months, but I’m coming back and fighting number one. It will probably be Weili Zhang – said Jędrzejczyk on the air of Kanał Sportowy.
After the first fight with Jędrzejczyk, the Chinese woman lost to Rose Namajunas twice and lost the UFC championship belt in straw weight to her.
“I thought it might be Carla Esparza, but it’s already confirmed that she is next to the championship.” He is somewhere [Marina] Rodriguez, who is also struggling with [Xiaonan] Yan, and then Weili Zhang remains. I don’t see any other fight – just going for the belt. Dana [White] he made me an offer to fight for the championship, but I would have to wait until November / December and I don’t want to wait. I want to fight – explained the Polish competitor.
For now, it is not known when exactly the fight with Joanna Jędrzejczyk, who has a record of 16 victories in 20 duels, would take place. The Polish woman was undefeated for a long time, but since the defeat of Rose Namajunas in 2017 and the loss of the UFC championship belt, she has lost 4 of the last 6 matches.
