Namajunas sets condition for Jedrzejczyk trilogy fight

Tuesday, May 22, 2018

Once former UFC women’s strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk looked impossibly fast, a Polish bruja, unbeatable. Then she was knocked out by Rose Namajunas, and then lost the rematch via decision.

Namajunas spoke recently with TMZ, and set conditions for a trilogy fight.

“Right now, that fight doesn’t really interest me at the moment,” said Namajunas, as transcribed by Jed Meshew for MMA Fighting. “I think I’d be interested to see how she does with somebody else before even entertaining that possibility. At the moment, there’s not much to gain from running that back again.”

Jedrzejczyk has struggled with simply saying the better fighter won. So Namajunas with tongue in cheek laid out what would lead to an immediate title shot

“Unless she’s says I’m the best – publicly!” said Namajunas. “Publicly. Because I already know she knows. You gotta say it to everybody! [Laughs] She knows I’m the best but she won’t admit it to everybody.”

Won’t happen.

Jedrzejczyk will be fighting her way back to the title. That path starts vs. Tecia Torres at UFC on FOX 30 in Calgary on July 28.
