Joanna Declines March Fight Offer In Favor Of Rest

Fight fans will have to wait to see Joanna Jedrzejczyk step foot back inside of the Octagon.

That’s according to the former UFC women’s strawweight champion herself, as Jedrzejczyk recently revealed that she turned down an offer to fight in March. The proposed event and opponent are unknown at this time, but streaking strawweight contender Tatiana Suarez was a rumored name.

“I received a fight offer for March, but I turned it down,” Jedrzejcyzk recently told WezloFM. “For now on, I just want to rest a bit, have a nice time with my family and eat well.”

This comes just days after Jedrzejcyzk tagged ONE Championship in an Instagram post, which was later deleted.

Jedrzejczyk, 31, is coming off a crushing defeat at the hands of Valentina Shevchenko at UFC 231 for the vacant UFC women’s flyweight title. Before that, the Polish striker lost back-to-back title fights to Rose Namajunas at 115 pounds, which ultimately ended her eight-fight UFC unbeaten streak. Jedrzejczyk sprinkled in a decision win over Tecia Torres this past July but simply hasn’t looked like her dominant self since her initial knockout loss to “Thug” back at UFC 217.

Considering Jedrzejczyk has fought at least twice per year since her UFC arrival in 2014, which includes a total of nine five-round title fights, the former champion may be taking a second to reset and collect herself.

When Jedrzejczyk does decide to return to action she’ll have to start from scratch to work her way back up the strawweight/flyweight ladder in another attempt at UFC gold.
