Joanna Jedrzejczyk defended her Ultimate Fighting Championship strawweight title for the fifth straight time on Saturday night with a comprehensive unanimous decision victory over Jessica Andrade at UFC 211.
When Jedrzejczyk (13-0) faces Andrade (16-5) at UFC 211 in the strawweight co-main event on Saturday in Dallas, she knows she'll be facing a tough challenge. Her assault on Andrade's legs continued.
From that point on, it was one-way traffic.
With his split decision win over Jorge Masvidal on Saturday night, Maia secured himself the next welterweight title fight. Scores were 50-45, 50-44 and 50-45.
"Some of the fighters have big mouths before the fights, and they think they know the best way to beat the champion or beat the opponent", Jedrzejczyk said. When that didn't work either, thanks to Jedrzejczyk's superb takedown defense, the challenger looked dispirited, and out of ideas.
"Before my last fight at Madison Square Garden, I only had six, seven weeks to work with my new coaches and team", Jedrzejczyk said.
However, the 29-year-old has already admitted she has her eye on the soon-to-be-created UFC 125-pound belt, which may be the only way she finds a meaningful test. "That's why I keep on defending this belt". "And this is what I want to do".

Miocic looks like enough of a sure thing that setting a new watermark for title defenses appears very much in play.
According to Fightmetric, Jedrzejczyk landed 215 total strikes compared with 74 for Andrade. Whenever Jedrzejczyk got to close to the fence, she pivoted or switched direction, often causing Andrade to run straight into the fence. I want to be an undefeated champion and retire undefeated.
"He's wonderful", Jedrzejczyk said, getting choked up.
"I'm not happy even after a good training session because I know I can do better". If the champ's sheer dominance didn't seem to faze the confident Andrade coming into the scrap, it became apparent as she failed to produce offense throughout. The next step for Jedrzejczyk is to see if she can transition from being a great champion to a superstar as well.
"It was not a joke", she said with a laugh. The UFC is going to be for the second time in Poland this year. The UFC is simply the best organization in the world, and most of the shows are here in the United States. "The last kick I threw, he felt a lot, and I felt I did well". In fact, she countered the heck out of Andrade, who just ate shot-after-shot and kept moving forward. "One day, when I didn't have a fight booked, I played with them there and they said 'wow, you're great, join our team so we can compete in a tournament, ' but the UFC booked a fight right after that and I couldn't play".
"If a Conor McGregor fight is on the table, it would be dumb not to take that fight but I'm going to focus right now on 145", Edgar said.
