Joanna Jedrzejczyk

Former undisputed UFC strawweight champion, Joanna Jedrzejczyk has announced her retirement from professional mixed martial arts tonight in Singapore following her second round spinning back-fist knockout loss to fellow former titleholder, Zhang Weili on the main card of UFC 275.

Osztyn native, Jedrzejczyk, started brightly in her highly-anticipated rematch against Weili — landing a series of punishing leg kicks, jabs, and some notable, heavy counters.

However, midway through the opening frame, the Pole was taken to the canvas by Weili courtesy of a takedown, with the Hebei native landing a series of elbows to steal the opening round.

Half way through the second round, however, during an exchange near the Octagon fence, and overzealous, Jedrzejczyk walked onto a spinning back-fist from Weili — sending her crashing to the canvas as she suffered the first KO loss of her professional mixed martial arts career.
