Former UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk will not stop chasing greatness. On Saturday, Dec. 8, 2018, she will be fighting for a second world title against Muay Thai rival Valentina Shevchenko for the women’s flyweight title.
Jedrzejczyk is 31 and recognizes that her years in combat sports will wind down, which is why she intends to make the most of her career.
People try to doubt me all the time, but I know who I am. I don’t care, co you can write, say whatever you want about me. In like two, three, four, five years, I might not be fighting anymore, and I will start the next story of my life. I want to give as much, get as much, and make history, because it’s going to be remembered.
Saturday night’s fight will mark Jedrzejczyk’s ninth UFC title match. She has slightly surpassed Ronda Rousey’s record of eight title fights. Jedrzejczyk is self-assured she will have victory over Shevchenko, which is being considered as the Greatest All Time Fight in women’s MMA.
At the UFC 231 pre-fight press conference she announced:
“There is no if. After my victory on Saturday, I will prove that I’m the G.O.A.T of women’s MMA.”
UFC 231 will take place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
