Joanna Jedrzejczyk has shown the results of a nasty training injury as she prepares to end her 14-month absence from the Octagon.
Former UFC strawweight world champion Jedrzejczyk hasn’t fought since losing a very fine decision to Zhang Weili at UFC 248 last March – a fight considered to be the most great in the history of women’s MMA.
However, her plans may have suffered a setback after she was forced to undergo stitches on a nasty leg laceration she suffered on Monday.
Despite the unpleasant nature of the notch, Jedrzejczyk is already back in training and has reiterated his desire to reclaim the 115-pound belt.
Weili was knocked out by Rose Namajunas at UFC 261 last month, meaning the Polish fighter will have to undo her two-game losing streak against ‘Thug Rose’ after being defeated twice already.
That means the very first two-time strawweight champion will likely have a wider range of options for her next fight, with Carla Esparza and Mackenzie Dern in contention.
As captured on UFC’s Thrill and the Agony, Namajunas said after her victory in Florida: “I love Joanna but she’s going to be crazy.”
“She’s gonna be fuckin ‘, because she was just like,’ Give me whoever it is, I want the winner of both ‘, and then you won and she’s like’ Dohhhh ‘”, a added coach Pat Barry.
