UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk will defend her belt when she takes on challenger Jessica Penne.
The Polish fighter recently talked to Submission Radio about that bout, as well as her win over former champ Carla Esparza.
Here’s what she had to say:
“You can be underdog, but you can beat the champion. This is what I did last time. And so I have lots of respect to my opponents. Of course me and my trainers, we have some game plans for this fight like for every fight, but you never know what’s going to happen in the Octagon. So you must have a different plan, second by second, when you’re in the Octagon.”
“But I think she can strike better than Carla and then she will try to take me down. But we will see. They cannot do it, yeah? I’m going to stay the champion (laughs).”
“Keep on striking and have a few aces in my pocket. But I will show you June 20 in Berlin.”
