Welcome to Frank Pozen's Big Bad Blog. A lot of folks have been asking me to update them about my recovery. So I thought I would start a blog primarily to do that but also to talk about other topics of interest including the wrestling business and whatever else I can think of. I plan to update this on a regular basis so check back and leave a comment if you wish.

Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs Claudia Gadelha added to Dec. 13 UFC show
Claudia Gadelha, Joanna Jedrzejczyk
The Polish website MMA Rocks reported this morning that Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs Claudia Gadelha has been added to UFC on FOX 13 Dec. 13 at the US Airways Center in Phoenix. I've known about this fight for a while but I was waiting for a confirmed date. This fight will probably determine the first challenger for the UFC Strawweight Championship. Joanna won her UFC debut over Juliana Lima by unanimous decision on the July 26 show. Joanna is 7-0 and she can really punch. Also, when Lima tried to get in her head by clowning around, Joanna just ignored it and beat her up. Claudia is 12-0 and is also a BJJ whiz. She won her UFC debut over Tina Lahdemaki by unanimous decision on the July 16 show. I thought she won the fight easily but she seemed to run out of gas late in the fight. I was disappointed she didn't finish Tina. Claudia has finished most of her fights but Joanna will be the highest level competition she has ever fought. She will want to take it to the ground but that may not be that easy as Joanna has the power and technique to keep her at a distance. She's a very hard puncher. So I think this will be a good one.
