THE STATISTICS

THE LOWDOWN

The pay-per-view queen, Joanna Jedrzejczyk, now graces the UFC on Fox card and takes on Tecia Torres as she works towards getting her strawweight title back. The former champion suffered her first two losses to Rose Namajunas. She suffered a shock knockout at UFC 217 and then was outpointed in their rematch at UFC 223.

A win in her first fight with Namajunas would have broken the record of female UFC title defences and would have solidified her legacy as one of the best female fighters ever so this will be a real test of character to see how she responds after those losses.

Torres has also only lost two fights in her career and we have seen her develop and evolve drastically during her eight UFC fights. She will be a very tough assignment for Jedrzejczyk as she has the cardio and athleticism to match.

THE PREDICTION

This is going to be a fast-paced chess match with both ladies showcasing their exceptional movement and combinations. They are both very hard to hit as well as possessing an overwhelming output as illustrated in the stats.

On paper they are very evenly-matched however, as although Torres is a great technical striker, Jedrzejczyk is a world champion calibre striker. She is a decorated Muay Thai and Kickboxing champion and the only fighter she has not utterly dominated on the feet is Namajunas. This is a good match-up for the Pole who has a significant reach advantage and is simply in a different league to Torres when it comes to striking.

Winner: Jedrzejczyk via Decision
