Joanna Jedrzejczyk reflects on title fight with Claudia Gadelha

One week ago on Friday, Joanna Jedrzejczyk stepped into the Octagon to fight Claudia Gadelha in her 3rd strawweight title defense.

Gadelha came out of the gate strong, putting the pressure on Jedrzejczyk throughout the first two rounds, however she gassed out quickly, and the champ was able to decisively win the last 3 rounds, ultimately retaining her title via unanimous decision.

Now, a week following the bout, Jedrzejczyk took to Instagram to reflect on the bout with her longtime rival:

It's already a week since my third title defence, I dedicate my success to my God and to all those who are afraid follow their dreams! We only live once, I went from zero to a Defending UFC Champion in 2 years.
