The UFC has a 135-pound division, of which Miesha Tate is the champ of, and it has a 115-pound division, which Joanna Jedrzejczyk rules. But the UFC tested the 125-pound waters at their last event with a match-up between Joanne Calderwood and Valerie Letourneau, and now our homegirl Jedrzejczyk is already talking about descending upon that weight class like a vengeful she-demon and ruling it with violence and fury.
As per MMAFighting:
“I think it’s going to be the last fight between me and Claudia Gadelha, because I have plans to move to a different weight class, to 125 if there would be an option to fight for a title next there,” Jedrzejczyk said. “We will see. I’ll focus on this fight and I think that I’m definitely going to win this fight.”
Asked to clarify those comments, with a shaky connection on the call, Jedrzejczyk reiterated.
“Yes, I want to be the first UFC fighter to hold belts in two different weight classes.”
“I predict that, so I know it’s going to happen,” Jedrzejczyk said. “It was a good fight between Valerie and JoJo, the first catchweight at 125, but I think we need that division. So many girls from bantamweight can go down, so many girls from strawweight division can go up. So we should make that division the next division.”
Asked who would be a contender to fight her for the inaugural 125-pound belt, Jedrzejczyk said it didn’t matter.
“I don’t know,” she said. “I want to be the first champion of the 125-pound division.”
Well, you have to admire her moxie.
