Joanna Jedrzejczyk refuses to call Rose Namajunas the best strawweight
Joanna Jedrzejczyk still refuses to call Rose Namajunas the best and believes Rose should bow to her.
“I will not do this,” Jedrzejczyk said at the UFC on FOX 30 post-fight press conference following a rebound win over Tecia Torres on Saturday (transcript via MMAFighting.com). “Never ever. She wants my honor? She must earn that. If she’s going to run, they’re going to make an interim belt. She was saying she’s afraid Conor McGregor will show up again and make a mess like he did before Brooklyn. He is not going to do this. Don’t be afraid, Rose. Come on. Just fight. Just face the best. You should face (Jessica) Andrade.
“If not, I will chase you. If you hold the belt, I will chase you. Until the next fight. That’s it.”
“I know how dedicated a fighter I am, how good [of an] employee I am for the UFC. We all should be like this,” Jedrzejczyk said. … “If she’s injured, OK. But if she’s just playing, if she want to have holiday, let the UFC know that, ‘I want to have a holiday, I want to have a break.’ Let UFC make an interim belt and let’s fight for the belt.”
