After her unanimous decision victory over Michelle Waterson last night at UFC Fight Night 161, Joanna Jedrzejczyk revealed that she broke her foot in the third round.
“… I think I broke (my foot) at the end of the second or third round,” Jedrzejczyk said post-fight. “In the fifth round, I was like, ‘OK, I shouldn’t kick with this foot.’ I felt pain, but then I was like, ‘(Expletive) it. What worse can happen? I’m going to break it in three pieces? They’re going to put it back together. That’s it.’ It’s a tough business.”
Nonetheless, Jedrzejczyk is already looking ahead to her next fight, and she has ambitious plans for it by attempting to win back the strawweight title currently held by Weili Zhang.
“That’s what’s next,” Jedrzejczyk stated. “I had a few interviews with the Chinese outlets and they asked me about that fight. They are super pumped. They want this fight to happen in Poland.
“Let’s do it in the National Stadium for 60,000 people. Let’s wait for spring. I will heal my foot. Of course, Weili is the champ, it’s her decision but let’s make this happen. I’m ready. More than ready.”
