Joanna Jedrzejczyk explains her emotional departure from UFC 211 press conference


Jędrzejczyk landed over 300 strikes throughout the fight, but Andrade walked through just about all of them as she continuously looked for a chance to end the fight and win the championship.

Joanna Jedrzejczyk won her fifth UFC title defense on Saturday via unanimous decision over Jessica Andrade. As is so often the case for anyone who faces the Polish Powerhouse not named Karolina or Claudia, challenger Jessica Andrade was praised for her gameness, toughness and heart during the one-sided affair.

"It's wonderful how he changed my wrestling, how he changed my takedown defense", Jedrzejczyk said (thanks to MMA Fighting for the quotes). The champion was simply brilliant.

She said she thinks about the kind of mother she would be - "strict but cool" - and is well aware that mixed martial arts takes a brutal toll on the body, far beyond whatever damage is inflicted on the night of combat itself.

Having found a new home at American Top Team, Jedrzejczyk is now looking forward to her next fight - which is likely to pit her against unsafe contender Rose Namajunas.

Five rounds and 25 minutes later, Jedrzejczyk celebrated yet another victory in one of her most masterful performances to date. "They really take care of me".

However, the 29-year-old has already admitted she has her eye on the soon-to-be-created UFC 125-pound belt, which may be the only way she finds a meaningful test. For her third fight, she headlined on Fox Sports 1, and then last November she performed third-from the top at UFC 205 in Madison Square Garden. Jessica Andrade is a powerful pressure striker who could present some matchup problems for Jedrzejczyk. I feel like I need to be here (to) build my brand. "Maybe I'm the baddest chick on the planet, maybe I'm the baddest woman in the Octagon, but I'm definitely emotional".

When the dust settled, it was a great night for two of the best 115-pound fighters in the world. "We hang out together".

"People still invite me to play soccer", Andrade said. "It's not just about the money".

The closest Jedrzejczyk came to a finish was probably in the fourth round, when she landed a left head kick that appeared to rattle Andrade momentarily. People checking out Jędrzejczyk for the first time would see that she is the real deal, and the media coverage leaving the event would be centered on her.
