Joanna Jedrzejczyk Picks Apart Jessica Andrade

Joanna Jedrzejczyk has the clear advantage on the feet and her ground game is improving with every fight.

Joanna Jedrzejczyk retained the UFC women's strawweight championship with a unanimous decision victory over Jessica Andrade (50-45, 50-44, 50-45) in the co-main event at UFC 211.

The first frame had all the signs of a great fight forming. The young Brazilian had talent, playing in both traditional soccer and indoor soccer (futsal). She also forced a relentless Andrade to switch stances by creating bad swelling in two spots on her lead left leg with constant kicks. Andrade would play everything she could whenever she had the chance, and would do well in pretty much everything.

What was the highlight of the fight?

Reigning UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor congratulated Jedrzejczyk in a tweet, calling her a "ferocious fighter". Jedrzejczyk peppers Andrade with punches and kicks from range and Andrade can not close the distance. Two years later, Jedrzejczyk's lopsided victories have become the norm.

Toughness can only take someone so far, though.

The win marks yet another notch in the belt for the dynamic Jedrzejczyk. That's the reason why I'm the champion, because of those guys and everyone else at the gym.

Knowing she was way behind on the scorecards, Andrade desperately chased Jedrzejczyk in the final round.

"I know what I want from myself and what I can expect from myself".

A hard front kick to the body lands for Joanna again, and the round ends with the two throwing shots at one another and Joanna pushing Andrade against the cage to end the fight. "First I want to reach the record of Ronda Rousey". No heavyweight has made three successful defenses. "I was very exhausted in the end". "It's not going to be easy". Maia, 25-6 with seven straight wins, said he was told afterward by White that he had earned a title fight with Tyron Woodley. He outlanded dos Santos 26-12 in significant strikes, with 23 of those strikes landing to the head of dos Santos, according to FightMetric.

Watching Jedrzejczyk do her thing is always worth your time, simply for the fact she brings technique and violence all at once. Ostensibly, Andrade was the one who could have taken that to another level.
