“Karo­li­na Ko­wal­kie­wicz doe­sn’t de­ser­ve a tit­le re­match”

Times of Suriname - - ENGELS -

USA - UFC stra­w­weight champ, Jo­an­na Je­drze­jc­zyk, has on­ce again suc­ces­sful­ly de­fen­ded her tit­le in do­mi­na­ting fas­hi­on, as she de­fea­ted fel­low Po­lak Karo­li­na Ko­wal­kie­wicz at UFC 205 this past week­end (Sa­tur­day, No­vem­ber 12, 2016) in their clash at Ma­di­son Squa­re Gar­den.

Whi­le Ko­wal­kie­wicz did ha­ve Je­drze­jc­zyk in trou­ble in the fourth round, The Cham­pi­on still does not be­lie­ve that it is en­ough to grant Ko­wal­kie­wicz a re­match for the gold, as she be­lie­ves she do­mi­na­ted the ma­jo­ri­ty of the con­test. He­re what she said on Mon­day’s edi­ti­on of The MMA Hour (cour­te­sy of MMA Figh­ting):

“No, co­me on. She lost the fight. It was li­ke 10-8 eve­ry round. May­be the fourth round she was dange­rous for li­ke 10 se­conds. In Wood­ley and Thomp­son, Thomp­son de­ser­ved the re­match, you know, the fight was so clo­se. But co­me on, she can’t talk about the re­match. I heard she was run­ning to Da­na [Whi­te] right af­ter the fight and as­king for the re­match, but co­me on, co­me on.” Je­drze­jc­zyk has now ex­ten­ded her win­ning streak to thirteen, as she is cur­rent­ly un­de­fea­ted in her mixed mar­ti­al arts (MMA) ca­reer, co­ming off of her fourth con­se­cu­ti­ve suc­ces­sful tit­le de­fen­ce, sin­ce win­ning the tit­le from in­au­gu­ral champ Car­la Espar­za at UFC 185 in March of last year.

With Je­drze­jc­zyk now ha­ving ar­gu­a­bly ta­ken out most of her com­pe­ti­ti­on at 115 pounds, it should be in­te­res­ting to see who will chal­len­ge the Po­lish knock­out ar­tist for the wo­men’s tit­le next. The Po­le’s fier­ce stri­king abi­li­ty has been the down­fall of ma­ny of her op­po­nents, as she cur­rent­ly holds four knock­out vic­to­ries in her MMA ca­reer, with the rest of her wins co­ming via lop­s­ided una­ni­mous de­ci­si­on wins. Whoe­ver the UFC de­ci­des to pair the sur­ging stra­w­weight cham­pi­on with next, is in for qui­te the batt­le. (sports­kee­da)
