Joanna Jedrzejczyk – affectionately known as Joanna Champion – defends her UFC Strawweight title against Valerie Letourneau tonight in the co-main event of UFC 193, a card headlined entirely by females.
Its a new day in the sport and one which very much has females at the forefront.
Fighters such as Ronda Rousey and Joanna Champion are heading the charge and empowering women across the globe with their beautiful violence.
As a Muay Thai practitioner I find Joanna Champion particularly enthralling to watch. Her brand of striking is head and shoulders above all the female fighters across both divisions.
Joanna can fight on the outside, mid range, the inside and throws beautiful combinations from nicely cut angles. Her opponents at this point have had no answers for her championship level Muay Thai. A woman this beautiful shouldn’t be this brutal on the feet, surely not.
Well she is, so here’s hoping we continue to see Joanna and her beautifully violent striking tonight.
In case you guys forgot here’s an awesome highlight reel of the UFC Strawweight champ.
