Jedrzejczyk recently upset Carla Esparza to win the UFC Straweight championship. No disrespect to the vet Esparza, who is still a heck of a fighter, but Joanna (way easier to just write her first name) winning the belt is the best thing for the division going forward. There’s a shortage of “personality’s” in the UFC right now and Jedrzejczyk provides plenty of it. Her trash talk leading up to the Esparza fight was very entertaining and it also paid dividends in the fight, as she clearly got in her head. She also is constantly sporting a cheeky smirk, as if she’s up to something.
