Joanna Jedrzejczyk has only stepped into the octagon four times, and yet she already believes she is the best striker in the UFC. Looking at the stats, it’s hard to deny that.
Jedrzejczyk has put up some unbelievable numbers since defeating Carla Esparza for the UFC Women’s Strawweight Championship at UFC 185. She has a combined 179 strikes (per FightMetric) in her last two outings in the cage and when asked if she believed she was the best striker in the company, regardless of gender, she simply replied, “I am.”
“I know I must by very focused,” she told MMA Fighting. “I must pay attention, I must work harder than before, because they’re going to watch me, you know? All of them, they’re going to watch me.”
