  • Joanna Jędrzejczyk (Polish: [jɔˈanna jɛnˈdʐɛjt͡ʂɨk] ( listen); born August 18, 1987) is a Polish mixed martial artist and former Muay Thaikickboxer who competes in the women's strawweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. She is the former UFC Women's Strawweight Champion and she is the third European (and only Polish) champion in UFC history after Bas Rutten in 1999 and Andrei Arlovski in 2005.[2] Prior to her defeat to Rose Namajunas, she was the #1 pound-for-pound female MMA fighter in the world.[3][4][5][6][7] She is also currently the #15 pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC mixed gender rankings.[8]

    Due to her surname being difficult to pronounce for English speakers, fans and the media have given her unofficial nicknames, such as "Joanna Champion,""Joanna Violence" and simply "Joanna.".[9][10]

    Muay Thai and kickboxing[edit]

    Jędrzejczyk discovered Muay Thai when she was 16, while taking up fitness, which eventually led her to compete in national and European tournaments.[11][12] Jędrzejczyk competed in Muay Thai and kickboxing for 10 years, winning over 60 matches. Her amateur Muay Thai accomplishments include six IFMA world medals (five gold, one silver) and four IFMA Eurpopean championships with a record of 37 wins and 3 losses. During her professional career Jędrzejczyk won five world titles including the WKN World Championship, J Girls Championship, WBKF Championship, WKF European Championship, and the WMC Championship.[13][14] Her professional record is 27-3.

    Mixed martial arts[edit]

    Early career[edit]

    Jędrzejczyk made her professional debut in mixed martial arts (MMA) on May 19, 2012, at SFT - MMA Fight Night Diva SPA against Sylwia Juskiewicz, winning via unanimous decision.[15] On December 8, 2012, at MFC 5 she defeated Lily Kazak by submission via rear-naked choke.[16] On June 20, 2013, at Battle of Moscow 12 she defeated the then #1 Russian WMMAflyweight fighter Julia Berezikova via unanimous decision.[17]

    By July 2013, Jędrzejczyk was the #7 women's flyweight fighter in the world by Fight Matrix.[18]

    On June 7, 2014, at Cage Warriors Fighting Championship 69 she defeated Rosi Sexton via knockout in the second round.[19]

    Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

    Jędrzejczyk officially signed with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) in July 2014.[20] She made her promotional debut, now fighting as a strawweight, on July 26, 2014, at UFC on Fox: Lawler vs. Brown against Juliana Lima. She won the fight via unanimous decision.[21]

    Jędrzejczyk next faced undefeated strawweight top contender Cláudia Gadelha on December 13, 2014, at UFC on Fox 13.[22] She won the fight via split decision. The judges' decision was met with much controversy as the majority of the MMA media scored the bout in favor of Gadelha.[23]

    Strawweight Champion[edit]

    Jędrzejczyk faced Carla Esparza for the UFC Strawweight Championship on March 14, 2015, at UFC 185.[24] Jędrzejczyk won the one-sided bout via TKO in the second round, becoming the first UFC title-holder from Poland and first female European UFC champion.[12][25] Subsequently, Jędrzejczyk won a Performance of the Night bonus.[26]

    Jędrzejczyk's first title defense was against Jessica Penne on June 20, 2015, at UFC Fight Night: Jędrzejczyk vs. Penne in Berlin, Germany. She successfully defended the title against Penne, defeating her in the third round via TKO following a flurry of punches and a knee against the cage. Both participants were awarded Fight of the Night honors.[27][28] Jędrzejczyk later underwent surgery to repair a fractured thumb incurred during the fight.[29]

    In her second title defense, Jędrzejczyk faced Valérie Létourneau on November 15, 2015, in the co-main event at UFC 193. She won the fight by unanimous decision to retain her title.[30] The 220 significant strikes landed by Jędrzejczyk were the most ever in a championship fight.[31] 70 leg kicks were landed by Jędrzejczyk, the most in UFC history. The previous record was 68, set by Carlos Condit against Nick Diaz at UFC 143.[31]

    In early 2016, the UFC announced that Jędrzejczyk would be one of the coaches, opposite former opponent Cláudia Gadelha on The Ultimate Fighter 23. A rematch between the two took place on July 8, 2016, at The Ultimate Fighter 23 Finale[32] in the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. She won the fight via unanimous decision.[33] Both participants were awarded Fight of the Night for their performance.[34]

    Jędrzejczyk successfully defended her title for the 4th consecutive time by defeating fellow PoleKarolina Kowalkiewicz by unanimous decision on November 12, 2016, at UFC 205 in Madison Square Garden, the first event the promotion had held in the historic arena.[35]

    Jędrzejczyk faced Jessica Andrade on May 13, 2017, at UFC 211. She won the fight via unanimous decision, and successfully defended her title for the fifth consecutive time.[36] Jędrzejczyk landed the most significant strikes in UFC championship history (225), had the highest significant strike differential in UFC championship history (142), and broke her previous record for most leg kicks thrown in a single fight (75).[37]

    Losing the UFC Strawweight Championship[edit]

    For her sixth title defense, Jędrzejczyk faced Rose Namajunas at UFC 217 at Madison Square Garden in New York on November 4, 2017. She was knocked overconfident going into the fight and was knocked down early in the first round after Namajuanas threw a left hook that knocked Jedrzejcyk down. After standing back up, a few seconds later. Jedrcejczyk went on to lose her title after she was caught with a left hook on the chin by Namajunas and tapped due to strikes. This was Jedrzejcyk's first loss in her professional MMA career. [38] Jedrzejcyk's excuse for losing the Strawweight Title was extreme weight cut.

    Strawweight Championship rematch[edit]

    A title fight rematch between Namajunas and Jędrzejczyk is scheduled on April 7, 2018 at UFC 223 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.[39]

    Fighting style and coaches[edit]

    A decorated kickboxer, Jędrzejczyk is known for precise and calculated striking.[40] She employs a sprawl-and-brawl strategy in MMA fighting.[41][42] While standing with opponents, she constantly varies between high punches and body shots, also utilizing knees, elbows, and high front kicks.[43][44] She also uses a flurry of strikes just to confuse the opponent before landing a solid strike, much akin to Chuck Liddell.[45] MMA journalist Darragh Murphy summed up her fighting style: "Her technique has the right combination of sublimity and relentlessness, expressing one's typically violent art through beauty, the perfect storm."[46]

    While Jędrzejczyk is soft-spoken and has a quirky and endearing personality with fans,[47][48][49][50][51] she often employs the use of trash-talk and bullying against her opponents before fights,[52][53][54] and her fights have been known to be violent and bloody.[53][55][56] UFC president Dana White has praised her stating "She is so bad ass... pound-for-pound [she is the] best female fighter on Earth... Her killer instinct is ridiculous."[57] MMA media have called Jędrzejczyk "must-see TV."[58][59][60][61]

    Jędrzejczyk has been praised for her elite level sprawl-and-brawl strategy implementation. Fightland striking analyst Jack Slack has written that "she's being likened to Chuck Liddell, and that is a pretty solid way to describe her...while she has an undoubtedly better technical striking game than Liddell".[62] striking analyst Connor Ruebusch has written "Distance, angles, and damage. These are the key ingredients of successful takedown defense, and the elements that make Joanna Jędrzejczyk and José Aldo such masterful strikers."[42]The Washington Post striking analyst Patrick Wyman has written "Sound fundamentals fuel the best fighters in the world, and nobody has better mastered the bread and butter of footwork and distance management than Aldo and Jedrzejczyk".[63] striking analyst Jason Parillo has stated "Joanna's MMA boxing is remarkable. It's second to none".[64]

    Starting with her UFC 205 training camp, she began training at American Top Team in Coconut Creek, Florida.[65]

    Personal life[edit]

    Joanna Jędrzejczyk was born in Olsztyn, Poland. She has a twin sister, Katarzyna, and one older sister, Ewa.[citation needed] She is engaged to Polish native Przemysław Buta.[citation needed] Jędrzejczyk is a Catholic, and prays with a Rosary before entering the ring or Octagon.[66]
