UFC strawweight champion, Weili Zhang, had a problem with the way former 115-pound titleholder, Joanna Jedrzejczyk, was making light of the coronavirus outbreak in China as a way to promote their upcoming title fight. The outbreak has killed well over 100 people and infected more than 6,000. It didn’t take long for Jedrzejczyk to kick it into reverse and try to lessen the blow, but in true Jedrzejczyk fashion, her apology did not come without...

Joanna Jedrzejczyk has issued a response to Zhang Weili. On Tuesday, the former strawweight queen reposted a meme to her Instagram story. The image was a takeoff of the UFC 248 fight poster. However, a gas mask was photoshopped on Jedrzejczyk (15-3 MMA, 9-3 UFC). The insertion of the mask poked fun at the current coronavirus virus outbreak in China, Weili’s home country. The post received some criticism online and Jedrzejczyk ultimately removed the image...

Former UFC strawweight champion, Joanna Jedrzejczyk, has been known to play mind games with her opponents.

Perhaps that’s why Jedrzejczyk refused to fight her not once, but three times. As luck would have it, Zhang is now the strawweight champion and Jedrzejczyk is the next available contender, which...

UFC Strawweight Champion Weili Zhang has 17 finishes in 20 wins, 10 of them by knockout, which ranks her alongside Cris Cyborg and Amanda Nunes as one of the most violent female finishers in the sport. And her one and only loss came by way of decision way back in 2013 when “Magnum” was just 23. That’s probably why the bookies have Zhang as the odds-on betting favorite for her UFC 248 co-main event against...

Being a UFC champion is not easy, and Joanna Jedrzejczyk knows that. The former UFC strawweight titleholder will get a chance to regain the belt on March 7 at UFC 248 in Las Vegas when she challenges champion Zhang Weili. And with the possibility of reclaiming UFC gold, Jedrzejczyk (16-3 MMA, 10-3 UFC) is aware of the challenges that could come her way if successful. The Polish standout said there are difficulties that come with...

Joanna Jedrzejczyk’s next fight is against one of the strawweight division’s most proven finishers, a scenario she’s more than familiar with. In an interview on the UFC Undisputed podcast, Jedrzejczyk let it be known she’s well aware of the danger Zhang Weili poses. “She’s a strong animal; she’s so big,” Jedrzejczyk said. “She throws very hard punches, but I’m more experienced. I’ve been through these championship bouts so many times, so I’m a real five-rounder....
