Next April, at UFC 223, Rose Namajunas will defend the straw title in a rematch against former champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk .
These days, the current queen of the division talked about this second fight with her partner.
“That’s the hard part of doing a rematch. You can not paint the Mona Lisa twice. You have to do something different, but if it’s not broken, do not fix it . We just have to keep doing what we’re doing, but keep improving, obviously, all the time. I knew I was going to knock her out because everyone is desperate for the demolition. Everyone tries to take it to the ground. I stand in front of Valentina Shevchenko, and we go back and forth, and it’s not something for me. I have Pat ‘HD’ Barry in my corner. I have Trevor Wittman. I’ve done taekwondo all my life. It’s not something I’ve never seen before.
“That Dutch kickboxing style, that’s great, it’s difficult. It’s very intimidating to stand in front of you, but you know it’s very rhythmic. It’s just something: it seems scary, but it’s nothing to be afraid of. I must remember that anything can happen at any time, and anyone can be dangerous. Then, at the end of the day, whatever it is supposed to be. I definitely feel like the best martial artist and the best fighter too .” Here it comes.
