Joanna Jedrzejczyk on Claudia Gadelha, “she will never be a champion” 

Published

The on-going rivalry between UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk and No. 1 contender Claudia Gadelha seems to be getting more and more heated.

Ahead of their rematch at the upcoming TUF 23 finale on July 8, the two spent time together on set of ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ where they were opposing coaches. As expected, things got heated to the point where, on the last day of filming, the two got into a physical altercation.

Appearing on an episode of The MMA Hour, Jedrzejczyk spoke about her time on set, her thoughts on Gadelha and the end of season fight between the two.

It was nice, a very good experience. I’m happy I got to do it. Real people, real emotions and real situations . This what I like about it and I can’t wait to watch it.

It was nice (being around Gadelha), you know. Of course on the last day I had enough. Claudia, she just talks too much. It was enough. She didn’t get into my head but it was like I was the adult and she was the kid. I had enough so I said a few words to her, I did some things and the rest I will do on July 8 in Vegas. 

The two feisty ladies got into it after, according to Dana White, Jedrzejczyk threw a water bottle at Gadelha after words were exchanged between the two during the final staredown.

We could hang out together but she (Gadelha) doesn’t like me. I’m the best. I’m the champion. This is what she dreams about but she will never be a champion.  

We pushed a little bit and she threw a kick but she can’t kick. Come on guys… I’m going to teach her how to kick. 

The hostility between the two dates back to December of 2014 when Jedrzejczyk beat Gadelha via split decision – a decision which Gadelha believes she won. Since then, the two have had some very interesting things to say about the other on social media and in interviews.

With filming now finished and both ladies in camp, things can and will be settled inside the eight-sided cage on July 8. With more than just UFC gold on the line, these two ladies are fighting for their countries and above all else, their reputations.

Published

on

Polish women’s federation Ladies Fight Night is going to celebrate their second birthday this year on the 15th to 17th of December. Two days, two events with a lot of great bouts.

LFN in Poland is being titled the new Invicta FC. The Polish owners created this federation to give European women a chance to fight on a big platform.

Hosting their first ever event in December 2015, LFN will hold two great cards next week, that will feature women who have fought under many prestigious promotions, such as the UFC, Invicta, Bellator, Glory, and Kunlun.

Two days of fantastic fights, intensified by a double dose of sports impressions. The name is not accidental, LFN 7 / LFN 8 combines two events, during which the best Polish fighters will be shown, as well as the best fighters from Europe (including France, Sweden, Italy, the Czech Republic and Romania)

The stakes are high, and we are electrified by the clashes between warriors such as Żaneta Cieśla vs Silvia La Notte and Patricia Axling vs. Cindy Silvestri. Mainly due to their vastness of their experience in the cage.

In the fight of the evening, the talented Romanian Cristina Stanciu will face Magdaléna Šormovádo. Stanciu fought twice in the UFC, but she was unfortunately cut from the promotion after suffering consecutive losses to Cortney Casey and Maryna Moroz.

Judyta Rymarzak vs Marta Waliczek is an amazing fight between two experienced kickboxers. Both making their pro MMA debuts on the night, we will witness a one-of-a-kind duel between two kickboxing perfectionists, as they look to transcend their skills into the MMA world.
