“I think I broke her already. So, I cannot help it. It’s me, Joanna Champion. I just want to make sure I’m gonna put on good preparations and I’m gonna win the fight July 8… No, it wasn’t hard. It was funny and I was enjoying every moment. … I think it was hard for her. She might go crazy a little bit, because one day I was nice, the other day I wasn’t. So who knows.”
-UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk talks about filming The Ultimate Fighter with Claudia Gadelha during the “Unstoppable” launch event press conference last week (transcribed by MMAFighting.com).
Penick’s Analysis: According to UFC President Dana White this week, Jedrzejczyk and Gadelha got into a full on brawl after filming had stopped on the show, so there’s sure to be lots of tension throughout the season leading into their title fight at The Ultimate Fighter 23 Finale on July 8. Jedrzejczyk remains a wholly entertaining personality, and if she’s getting Gadelha to respond she certainly may be in her head already. That title fight should be excellent this summer, and it’s one of the more anticipated fights on the docket right now.
