Joanna Jedrzejczyk Really Doesn’t Want To Be Compared To Ronda Rousey

Heading into last night’s (Sat., Nov. 4, 2017) UFC 217 from Madison Square Garden in New York City, New Yor, the general overarching consensus was that former UFC women’s strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk was going to roll over Rose Namajunas on the main card and tie Ronda Rousey’s record for most consecutive UFC female title defenses in the process.

However, “Thug” Rose had quite a different idea, and she proved that her evolution as a fighter was complete when she shocked Jedrzejczyk with a brutal first-round knockout (watch full highlights here) that actually had the former champ tapping out to strikes.

The emotions understandably set in for the previously dominant Jedrzejczyk at the UFC 217 post-fight press conference, and some even speculated that she had gone the way of former women’s bantamweight champion Rousey by getting a bit over-heated and physical during pre-fight staredowns, something Rousey did during the lead-up to her first MMA loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in November 2015 (where Jedrzejczyk ironically secured the second defense of her title).

Noah K. Murray for USA TODAY Sports

But Jedrzejczyk wasn’t having any of those comparisons, as she noted she wouldn’t take the loss to Namajunas personally (quotes via Bloody Elbow) and let it affect her overall psyche like Rousey, who returned to MMA for one more knockout loss and has been missing ever since, did. Instead, she attributed it to being just another part of the notoriously brutal fight game:

“No no, please don’t compare me to Ronda Rousey and I love her so much and we have very good relationship, but please let’s leave this bullshit away,” said the former champion. “I never take fights personal and I’m not emotional when fighting.”

“This is what happens,” added Jedrzejczyk. “Big congrats to Rose, I’m happy for her, but it was not personal, you know? This is what happened. The things which happened before the fight had nothing to do with this fight. It was a good punch, she cut me off, I really don’t know what happened, but it’s the fight you know? We take these risks.”

As for her next bout, Jedrzejczyk said she would sit down with UFC President Dana White to discuss her next move, but believes that with five prior title defenses, she had done enough to earn an immediate rematch with “Thug” Rose:

“I will sit and talk to Dana and the UFC, I think I’ve been a good athlete and a good champion for the UFC. I think I deserve the rematch. If I get the rematch we will see, I am looking forwards.”

The former champion will look forward, with the goal of tying and/or eclipsing Rousey’s record in the rearview mirror for now. there’s no doubt Jedrzejczyk is still one of the finest strikes in mixed martial arts (MMA), yet Namajunas may have bridged what was viewed as an unfathomable gap in only one round at UFC 217.

That means it’s back to the drawing board for Jedrzejczyk, but just don’t expect her to go into hiding like Rousey.

  • Barry

    Dont worry JJ, after being dropped twice and tapping out due to strikes and quitting against Rose. and not equalling or even breaking her record, you never will be……….

    • Jenny

      True Jamie, but JJ still has to be embarrassed in 48 seconds after training for one full year for one fighter, shun the media who made her because she’s afraid to get asked a question, marry a wife beater, and so much more.

      • Barry

        But meatcrusher aka jess fenchley aka honda lousey aka butterbean and the other 10 accounts you have, jj got her azz handed to her by a much smaller chick with an average record while jj does nothing but train while Ronda only trained for 6 weeks and was basically doing non mma related activities for 10 and a half months. If you had a brainstem you would know that!!!!
        But I guess idiocy is your default trait after jamie and Ronda ruined your pitiful existence…..
        Just pathetic really 😁😁😁😁

        • Jenny

          Barry, otherwise known as the moron from down under breathing asbestos, is the last clueless fan of the RR fantasy club. Get over it. She is retired, and you have no more false idol to fawn over.

          • Barry

            Jenny, otherwise known as the moron from the U.S. high on flakka as usual, is the last of the Rousey haters club. Get over it. She is a legend, and you have no more reason to live HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

          • Amber

            Poor jess fenchley making up lies and fairytales YET AGAIN and RR’s success and constant publicity continues to overwhelm and frustrate you to tears. Your a “supposed” adult who trolls Jamie and Ronda everywhere….
            Grow up clown

          • Back to da house

            And yet once more!!!!
            OMG get help bro. Your stalker-like behavior is disturbing

          • Back to da house

            Great that Ronda is a business owner, entrepreneur, actress, author, olympian, ufc champion, pioneer, movie producer, model and the list goes on and on remaining relevant as always while you cling to the titanic that is JJ and holm rapidly sinking into oblivion where you clearly belong….

      • Rippit

        Whats the matter meatcrusher???
        Are you crying all 3 of your idols were towelled in humiliating fashion just like your overhyped paperchamp buster holm???
        Youre a joke jess fenchley and everyone knows it….

        • Jenny

          Jamie, go create 100 more accounts. You’re truly pathetic.

          • Rippit

            Meatcrusher, go create 200 more accounts. You’re truly pathetic.

          • Amber

            Now Jamie and ronda will destroy you again and you will delete your plethora of fake accounts and hide for months like you always do. You’re an embarrassment to your country and you know it

          • Back to da house

            And yet again!!!!!
            Were you diddled as a kid?
            No normal person carries on like you do…

      • Ladder

        Always a joy watching you tie yourself in knots over the triumphant success of a 30 year old woman lol!!!! Her accolades and Jamie’s superiority have crushed and ruined and obliterated your life and hope and intelligence and reason for living and so much more….
        Absolutely hilarious!!!!

        • Jenny

          No, Jamie, you are the moron with 50 accounts trying to increase a non-existent RR fan base. Hilariously clueless.

          • Ladder

            No meatcrusher aka jess fenchley, you are the moron with 50 accounts trying to increase the non-existent hate brigade while 1 by 1 your overhyped fallen one trick pony exposed heroes are as irrelevant and insignificant as you are…..
            Hilariously clueless :):):)

          • Amber

            And this from a clown who is on EVERY ROUSEY THREAD ever created trying without success to validate himself……..
            You were born nothing and are nothing……
            Deal with it

          • Back to da house

            Arent you the one who follows Ronda everywhere and chastises every person who doesn’t agree with you?
            Your actions scream mental disorder.

      • Rippit

        Rousey is head and shoulders above jj as far as status and records go. Only clueless imbeciles like jenny would argue…………

      • Amber

        Great that RR is now the G.O.A.T. as stated by Dana and you know that means she is HOF bound and there is not 1 thing you and your non existent hate brigade can do about it :):):)

      • Back to da house

        Seems you have an obsession on Ronda. Every article has you all over it.
        Did she shun you after you waited 6 hours for her to sign the lifesize RR poster and youve cried ever since?

  • Draven

    Joanna needed to be humbled after the trash talk and cockiness she showed leading up to the fight. She was s good champion and I hope she bounces back.

  • HeteroFriendly

    Joanna is definitely a great fightress, but I dont know if she was cemented in place as much as rousy was to really need a rematch already.

    But I wont be mad if they do it either.

  • Barry

    Rousey is head and shoulders above jj as far as status and records go. Only clueless imbeciles like jenny would argue

    • Jenny

      No, Jamie, you’re wrong again. JJ will fight and win again. RR is a DNB served cans until no cans were left. Only clueless imbeciles like Jamie would argue.

      • Barry

        Yes as usual I am right YET AGAIN as I always am. JJ will move to 125 to avoid Rose like your washed up exposed idol avoids fights with anyone lol!!!!!
        So glad that Dana stated at the post-presser that RR is now the G.O.A.T.
        No wonder moronic neanderthals like you spew jealous hatred….
        Must suck to be you.
        All your idols have been whipped and you have no one to follow but Ronda and jamie.
        Only a lifelong flakka addict like you could be so pathetic………

      • Rippit

        Rousey is head and shoulders above jj as far as status and records go. Only clueless imbeciles like jenny would argue

      • Amber

        Jamie as always is right and his post history confirms it. Now run along with your 12 accounts and delete them all like you always do and cry and hide for 3 months like the washed up no-life loser you are 🙂

      • Back to da house

        Wrong once more fanboy.
        Are you always this stupid or were you born that way?
        You remind me of those tiny robots that just keep banging into walls without a clue.

        • Jenny

          Do I? You cannot afford those robots. You spent all your money on Honda memorabilia. Hilarious.

          • Back to da house

            Yet again you have nothing but infantile dribble to post. Having all your love crushes turn to dust sure has left you a bitter lonely fool. Hope all your posters survived your temper tantrums 😁

          • Back to da house

            I actually ride a honda fireblade so thats the closest youve been to the truth all day lol!!!!
            You can now watch seasame street now little boy since you finally got something right LMAO!!!!
            Hysterical!!!!

          • Back to da house

            Lucky for you your mommy pays for your internet to allow you to troll people making you feek like the success youll never be….
            Ouch!!!!

  • Fester

    Jedrzejczyk did not have any “easy” fights, but apparently underestimated Namajunas, and lost her title. The Polish fighter will be back and remain the biggest threat in her division.

    Rousey began by fighting dross in a new division and had no need to become well-rounded; it was the encounters with championship level fighters Holm and Nunes which promptly retired Rousey.

    • Jenny

      Correct, RR was fed cans until no cans were left.

      • Rippit

        Correct. JJ was fed nothing but cans until a class fighter exposed her while the world laughed. Ironically most that RR obliterated beat nunes shevchenko and busterholm lol!!!!!!!!
        Seems your clueless self left out those FACTS huh moron???

        • Jenny

          Does not change anything about your paper champ Honda DNB

          • Rippit

            Yep now officially the G.O.A.T and bound for the hall of fame while all your fallen idols got fed their own A holes!!!!
            Holm = 1 and 3 and a true paperchamp

      • Amber

        12 and 6 and thanks to Dana is now the G/O.A.T and is HOF bound now that your hero JJ was publicly humiliated by a much smaller, well rounded fighter who trashed your can-fed, one trick pony to tears lol!!!!

        • Jenny

          and Honda humiliated into retirement like a DNB. whats your point, Jamie?

          • Amber

            And meatcrusher still cut up by Ronda and Jamie!!!!!
            Your reason for living jess fenchley???

          • Rippit

            And girls RR crushed in seconds wiped the floor with your fake overhyped has-beens lol!!!!!
            Great times again :0

      • Back to da house

        Wrong again twit!!!!

      • Amber

        Rousey is head and shoulders above jj as far as status and records go. Only clueless imbeciles like jenny would argue :):)
        RR future inductee to hall of fame……..

        • Jenny

          Until she got her head knocked off her shoulders, twice.

          • Amber

            And Ronda is still all I said lol!!!!!
            You lost again douche

          • Rippit

            hows buster holm going after 1 win out of 4 and wont fight anyone???
            LMFAO!!!!!!!
            RR 12 straight and 6 title defences and now the G.O.A.T and bound for the ufc hall of fame while all your fallen heroes wont get anywhere near her
            What great times :):):)

  • Barry

    JJ was exposed as a 1 dimemsional fighter who relied on mind games to win. Rose won easily and will do so again. Ronda destroyed many who beat holm shevchenko and nunes. Many haters forget that fact

    • Jenny

      100% Irrelevant Jamie, Amanda ended her career in 48 seconds. No amount of your juvenile fan boy fantasies will ever change that. Nothing.

      • Barry

        100% relevant meatcrusher. No woman will ever beat 12 straight with 6 title defences now that your other fallen, exposed, one trick pony has been humiliated in front of the world while your obsession and jealousy of Ronda and Jamie continue to destroy you.
        No amount of accounts from you (12) and trolling of me and Ronda will ever erase those facts!!!
        Nothing.

        • Jenny

          Numbers against cans – meaningless record.

          • Barry

            Numbers against the best in the division = butthurt losers like you
            How come nunes and shevchenko and buster holm couldnt beat the SAME GIRLS???
            No answer?
            Because you dont have one
            Moron

          • Rippit

            and yet holm shevchenko and nunes lost to most of them lol!!!!!!!
            Yet another clueless response from the king of idiocy, meatcrusher….
            Well done jessica :0

      • Amber

        And you’d know all about being irrelevant since you cling to Ronda and Jamie for years since without them you are nothing. Just like all your fallen idols that have been exposed and humiliated……….
        NOTHING.

        • Jenny

          Amber = Jamie – pathetic.

          • Amber

            jenny= braindead imbecile
            Tragic 🙂

      • Back to da house

        Still trolling…..
        Back under your rock, grub.

        • Jenny

          Back under your asbestos pile. Kangaroo humper.

          • Back to da house

            Yet another gold reply coming from a terrorist supporting mass shooting cesspool of braindead wankers. No wonder the world is laughing at all your tragedies….

          • Rippit

            Hows things over there with all the hurricanes and shootings and police crimes and racism and terrorist attacks huh???
            Never laughed so much!!!!!! especially 9/11
            None of that happens here though.
            I understand all your anger and jealousy and hatred. Its ok to want to be like jamie and ronda.
            Its obvious to everyone

      • Amber

        Rousey is head and shoulders above jj as far as status and records go. Only clueless imbeciles like jenny would argue :):)
        #RRhofbound

  • Rippit

    Great win by Rose. JJ simply outclassed by a much smaller underhyped opponent.
    After the JJ trash talk about RNs’ issues, it made it all the more satisfying. That’s twice now JJ has cried despite saying she isnt emotional…….
    As to the article she will always be second fiddle to RR

    • Jenny

      No, JJ did not run away and hide like a coward when decimated twice. That is her legacy – the ultimate DNB.

      • Rippit

        Yep everything I have stated is factual and all the crying and temper tantrums will never erase those facts. Now delete your account for the 12th time and hide for 3 months like you always do hahahahaha!!!!!
        You’re the ultimate DNB while Ronda is the ultimate “do everything b—h”
        Thats her legacy and Dana stating she is now the G.O.A.T. is too traumatic for you to deal with
        12 straight wins and 6 title defences and not 1 of your fallen washed up overhyped paperchamps will ever get near it……..EVER 🙂

        • Jenny

          Cannot be a GOAT when you fought hand-served cans by daddy Dana and then got roasted twice. KTFO twice. Run and hide.

          • Rippit

            Yep G.O.A.T officially and there is not 1 thing you can do about it.
            Bound for the hall of fame while your fallen idols are bound for street corners servicing “johns” to make ends meet!!!
            Yes you should run and hide like you always do after I destroy your dumbazz 🙂

          • Rippit

            All you have ever done jessica is follow jamie and ronda……..
            Thats it and thats all you will do.
            Shows how fragile and easily upset you are by following people you cant stand.
            Clearly you are traumatised and mentally damaged
            Poor meatcrusher
            Ronda HOF bound!!!!!! 🙂

      • Rippit

        Funnily enough dumbazz, MT also ran and hid after 2 straight embarrassments but your obsession and blind hatred of RR and anyone who isnt as f—ed in the head as you, has left you a shattered and pathetic troll with nothing in life but her millions of fans and RR…..
        Tragically and pathetically moronic 🙂

        • Jenny

          Jamie, go buy some more complete worthless RR memorabilia, you sucker.

          • Rippit

            Yes of course jessie you have nothing but insults to post since rationality and facts are beyond comprehension for you. As usual I am right and you have been owned repeatedly for the umpteenth time HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!
            You yanks sure are a clueless bunch

          • Rippit

            All you have ever done jessica is follow jamie and ronda……..
            Thats it and thats all you will do.

            Poor butterbean on his 12th account

      • Amber

        12 straight wins an 6 title defences and now, as Dana stated, is the G.O.A.T. and all the crying from you wont erase his FACT hahahaha!!!!
        Douche 🙂

        • Jenny

          Jamie, quoting Dana made you lose any credibility.

          • Amber

            Gary, following Ronda and me for years makes you the worlds biggest loser.
            Pretty sad from an “adult”
            Laughable!!!!!!!!!

            All you have ever done jessica is follow jamie and ronda……..

          More than you ever will, Jamie.

          • Back to da house

            Who’s jamie???
            Showing your lack of IQ again cretin…
            Ronda did more last night than you ever will and you know it otherwise you wouldnt be here…
            Truth hurts huh???

        12 and 6 🙂

        • Jenny

          You compare numbers and not what the numbers mean. Clueless fan boy moron. Breathing too much asbestos?

          • Amber

            You still butthurt by the truth and the facts and you cant deal with it
            Thats why you’re here
            Pathetic
            High on flakka idiot???

          • Rippit

            90 comments from your 12th fake account all directed at jamie and ronda.
            No one ever said yanks were intelligent……….just easily ridiculed and humiliated

      • Rippit

        90 comments from your 12th fake account all directed at jamie and ronda.
        No one ever said yanks were smart………..

  • HeteroFriendly

    Lol @ 81 comments.

    Dude, just shoehorn the word “rousy” into the title of every article and get your page hits up there through the roof through every news aggregate algorithm in silicon valley.

    • HeteroFriendly

      “Breaking news!
      This has nothing to do with RONDA ROUSY,
      but Pepsi tastes great!”

      Thats a toofer, you get a couple of bucks from Pepsi too.

      • Amber

        Actually it does. JJ doesnt want to be compared to “ronda rousey” so it does have a little to do with her…….

        • HeteroFriendly

          It was an example of how to shoehorn RONDA ROUSY into a title going forward.

          In this articles example, it was indeed vaguely related to RONDA ROUSY. But that was just a lucky coinky-dink.

    • Rippit

      Yes well you can thank “jenny’ for that who trolls me everywhere that is Rousey related. I get she isnt everyones favorite but my choice seems to have caused great mental issues with jenny aka meatcrusher aka jess fenchley aka honda lousey aka butterbean. Its obvious since he has now deleted his comments and his account yet again. Rousey sure does have a huge influence it seems 🙂

      • HeteroFriendly

        Fair enough.
        Tell her to bring her friends and lets hit 1000 comments together.

  • Amber

    Rousey is head and shoulders above jj as far as status and records go.

  • Barry

    JJ was exposed as a 1 dimemsional fighter who relied on mind games to win. Rose won easily and will do so again. Ronda destroyed many who beat holm shevchenko and nunes. Many haters forget that fact

  • Rippit

    Great win by Rose. JJ simply outclassed by a much smaller underhyped opponent.
    After the JJ trash talk about RNs’ issues, it made it all the more satisfying. That’s twice now JJ has cried despite saying she isnt emotional…….
    As to the article she will always be second fiddle to RR
