Big Bad Blog Video Theater-Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs Karolina Kowalkiewicz
Here's the match video of Joanna Jedrzejczyk defending her UFC Strawweight Championship against fellow Pole Karolina Kowalkiewicz. The big news leading up to this fight is that Joanna moced from her home in Poland to American Top Team in Coconut Creek, FL. Joanna has wanted to move to the US for a while mostly to get better endorsement opportunities. I'm not exactly sure what Mike Brown can do to improve her fighting style. Karolina is a striker similar to Joanna but she's just not at the same level. I thought Joanna would win easily. And it was except for one moment in round four when Karolina staggered Joanna with a punch straight in the mush. I've seen several of Karolina's fights and I've never seen her land a punch that hard. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes. It was enough for me to give her that round. But other than that, she couldn't do much with Joanna. So I scored the fight 49-46 for Joanna. Joanna outclassed her in all areas. So who's next for Joanna? I'm looking at you, Jessica Andrade. They actually used to train together and they had the same manager. But Joanna has distanced herself from Jessica since Jessica moved to Strawweight expecting to fight her down the road. One more win for Jessica and we might see this fight. Enjoy the video!
