“I would love to [fight],” Joanna Jedrzejczyk told Cageside Press. “But I don’t have a name in my head. I don’t know – whoever. I’m not afraid to fight anybody, that’s the thing. Of course, when they brought my name [up as a BMF contender], I texted Hunter (Campbell) right away.”

“I was like, ‘So, Hunter, what do you thin about me fighting for the female BMF belt?” Joanna Jedrzejczyk explained. “And he was like, ‘No, you don’t need more titles.’ if they [the UFC] create the BMF for women, I want to be the first [to fight for it]. I would come out of my retirement to fight for the BMF belt. Let’s go.”
