One of the most interesting fights at UFC on FOX 13 was the one in straw category in which Joanna Jedrzejczyk defeated Claudia Gadelha via split decision. However, this match was also marked by a punch Gadelha landed after the final gong.

Many compared to Paul Daley vs. Josh Koscheck when Daley punched his opponent in the welterweight title match. After that Daley was banner from the world's top MMA promotion. However, the UFC president did not want to compare the two cases.

“As soon as (Gadelha) did it to (Jedrzejczyk), she apologized to her. She said, ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry,’ and she apologized. Those two had a war, they’re in the heat of battle, and (Jedrzejczyk) landed a kick, the bell rang, and then (Gadelha) hit her with a punch. And then she completely apologized for doing it. Totally different scenario.”
