Joanna Jedrzejczyk wants to be the female ‘Baddest Motherf****r’ (BMF) champion like teammate, Jorge Masvidal is.
She was envious that Masvidal got the chance to do become that and after seeing the belt, she wants her own. She hopes UFC president, Dana White agrees and will make a female BMF belt that will feature Jedrzejczyk.
“People used to call me violent, savage,” Jedrzjecyzk told the South China Morning Post. “Jorge [Masvidal] just won the belt – the baddest [expletive] belt. I want to be the female BMF.”
Why she believes she is the female BMF is simple. Jedrzejczyk says she and Ronda Rousey stand out for everything they accomplished and Amanda Nunes is the GOAT, but she thinks she is the BMF. She believes she is a true BMF and points to other girls in the strawweight division.
“These [other] girls can make it, they can win the belt, but there’s nobody like Ronda Rousey, [nobody] like me,” Jedrzejczyk said.
“People can doubt me, and they’ll do that forever, but show me a better, cleaner fighter in the UFC or in general. Of course, Amanda Nunes is the GOAT [greatest of all time] right now, but Ronda Rousey had six successful title defences, me, five. Rose [Namajunas]? One title defence. Jessica [Andrade] couldn’t defend the title.”
It is expected Joanna Jedrzejczyk will battle Weili Zhang for the strawweight title in early 2020. There, the Pole will look to reclaim the strawweight belt that she held from March of 2015 to November of 2017. If she can reclaim the belt, she believes that secures her spot as the female BMF and hope that the title fight follows the actual strawweight title fight.
Regardless, Joanna Jedrzejczyk just wants a shot at becoming the female BMF and doesn’t think any other female deserves it, or should get it before her.
