Fenech: Pacquiao would not beat Horn in a rematch

  Fenech: Pacquiao would not beat Horn in a rematch The Australian boxing great reveals Horn's biggest advantage.Horn's advantage? Fenech puts it down to the Australian's age and fitness, coming up against an opponent well past his prime as he nears 39 years of age in December.

Joanna Jedrzejczyk was the first championship domino to fall on Saturday night, and she was also the first to come out and address the media afterwards. “I just lost the title , I lost the belt, okay, maybe I’m crying now but I’m not going to cry – like I said, I will turn the page and I will be back stronger .

But not to former UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk — at least according to American Top Team coach Mike Brown, who’ll be in her corner for Saturday’s UFC 223 title rematch with champ Rose Namajunas.

Joanna Jedrzejczyk was the first championship domino to fall on Saturday night, and she was also the first to come out and address the media afterwards. Even if it is just the way the UFC 217 post-fight presser was scheduled, one gets the sense that she would have no issue leading off even after having suffered a TKO loss to Rose Namajunas earlier in the evening that cost her the UFC strawweight crown.

It was supposed to be a coronation at Madison Square Garden for Jedrzejczyk, who thrilled the legendary New York City venue with a commanding five-round win over Karolina Kowalkiewicz just 12 months earlier and was seeking a sixth title defence that would tie her with Ronda Rousey for the most by any female fighter in UFC history; instead, her reign atop the 115-lb division came to an end.

I would win a rematch with Floyd: McGregor

  I would win a rematch with Floyd: McGregor UFC champion Conor McGregor has come out swinging at Floyd Mayweather, claiming he would be victorious in a rematch with the undefeated boxer. After luring Mayweather out of retirement for the exhibition fight in August, McGregor lost by TKO to take his American opponent's win-loss record to a perfect 50-0. "He changed his game plan three times in the middle of a fight, three times, that's a special individual," the two division UFC champion said in a press junket for his upcoming documentary, 'Conor McGregor: Notorious'.

After an emotional training camp, Joanna Jedrzejczyk vows to retake strawweight title . Joanna Jedrzejczyk promises a different outcome in the rematch vs. Rose Namajunas on April 7 at UFC 233 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Claudia Gadelha earned a title shot at UFC 190, and promises to "run through" 115-pound champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk "like or November, and targets early 2016 for her return to action in a rematch against Jedrzejczyk . I will work other things during this time, get stronger , more flexible, faster

Jedrzejczyk had built up a healthy rivalry with Namajunas during the leadup to their fight, but scoffed at the suggestion that her emotions may have affected her performance in a negative way. She specifically mentioned wanting to avoid comparisons to Rousey, who received similar criticism after being upset by Holly Holm.

“No, no, please, don’t compare me to Ronda Rousey. I love her so much and we have a very good relationship but please, let’s leave this bulls--t away,” Jedrzejczyk said at the post-fight press conference. “I never take fights personal and I’m not emotional when I’m fighting. Everything went so smooth during this camp, it was a very long camp, for 13 weeks I was training with American Top Team. Just a big surprise and this is what happens.

“Big congrats to Rose. I’m happy for her, but I will be back stronger. It was not personal. The things which happen before the fight have nothing to do with this fight. It was a good punch, she cut me off, I really don’t know what happened. It’s the fight, you know? We take this risk.”

UFC 218: Title opponent for Robert Whittaker all but confirmed after Georges St-Pierre defeats Michael Bisping

  UFC 218: Title opponent for Robert Whittaker all but confirmed after Georges St-Pierre defeats Michael Bisping Interim UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker will almost certainly fight UFC legend Georges St-Pierre in 2018 to unify the belts after a comprehensive victory for the Canadian on Sunday against England's Michael Bisping.Despite it being some four years since St-Pierre, who is widely considered one of the greatest UFC fighters ever, if not the greatest, had stepped inside the octagon, he showed no signs of rust through a fairly even first two rounds before choking out Bisping in the final minute of the third round, as the Australian applauded at ringside.

Rose Namajunas stood and traded for 25 minutes with one of the world’s best strikers, Joanna Jedrzejczyk , and walked away still the champ. Namajunas (8-3 MMA, 6-2 UFC) took a unanimous decision from Jedrzejczyk (14-2 MMA, 7-2 UFC) in their rematch for the 115-pound title

Asked what could be next for her, Jedrzejczyk expects to get a chance to regain her title.

“I must sit and talk to Dana and the UFC,” she said. “I think I’ve been a good athlete and good champion for the UFC. That’s it. I think I deserve the rematch, if I will not get the rematch, we’ll see.”

“I want my belt back and that’s the thing, it’s probably going to be the biggest goal right now to get my belt back because s--t happens everywhere, so it was a mistake, it was a big surprise,” Jedrzejczyk added later. “I cannot say it was a lucky punch. She had a very good gameplan for this, she cut me off, that’s it, but this night was crazy, it was a pleasure for me to fight at the Garden, back to New York City to fight at UFC 217. It was not a lucky night for me, Cody (Garbrandt), and Michael (Bisping), but we are professional athletes, we moving forward.”

Jedrzeczyk was one of three champions to fall at UFC 217, with Garbrandt losing the bantamweight strap to TJ Dillashaw in the co-main event, and Michael Bisping dropping his middleweight belt to Georges St-Pierre to close out the show. Unlike her male counterparts who were seeking their first and second title defenses respectively, Jedrzejczyk was well on her way to cleaning out her division.

Joanna Jedrzejczyk vows to return 'stronger', hopes for title rematch

  Joanna Jedrzejczyk vows to return 'stronger', hopes for title rematch Joanna Jedrzejczyk was the first championship domino to fall on Saturday night, and she was also the first to come out and address the media afterwards. Even if it is just the way the UFC 217 post-fight presser was scheduled, one gets the sense that she would have no issue leading off even after having suffered a TKO loss to Rose Namajunas earlier in the evening that cost her the UFC strawweight crown.

ST. LOUIS – UFC strawweight champion Rose Namajunas is looking to return to the octagon for her first title defense sometime between April and July. And in her mind, a rematch with Joanna Jedrzejczyk is the most probable matchup.

Rose Namajunas shocked plenty when she knocked out Joanna Jedrzejczyk to win the women's strawweight title at UFC 217. In MMAjunkie Radio’s latest Daily Debate poll question asked: What outcome do you predict for the UFC 223 rematch ?

That meant possibly moving up to the soon-to-be-formed women’s flyweight division to challenge the winner of the 26th season of The Ultimate Fighter, but now that Jedrzejczyk has seen her unbeaten streak snapped, her focus appears to be solely on redeeming herself against Namajunas.

That, and getting some much needed rest and relaxation.

“I will have some holiday with my family,” Jedrzejczyk said. “I will fly back home - I was pretty busy for the last year - so I will fly home to Poland just hang out with my parents, my family, and we will see. I have so many things going on. I work with WME-IMG, with (executive) Brad Slater, it’s a pleasure for me. I have my manager in Poland, we have so many plans.

“I just lost the title, I lost the belt, okay, maybe I’m crying now but I’m not going to cry - like I said, I will turn the page and I will be back stronger. It’s not going to change me as an athlete or as a person.”
