Biography
She has been called the greatest female strawweight mixed martial artist of all time, including by Daniel Cormier, who credited her with putting the weight class "on the map". Over the next two years, she continued her undefeated streak with five successful title defenses against opponents such as Jessica Penne, Cláudia Gadelha, and Jéssica Andrade. Following a two-year layoff, Jędrzejczyk retired from mixed martial arts in June 2022 after losing a rematch against Zhang at UFC 275.
Fighter Trivia
Jędrzejczyk is Catholic and prays with a rosary before entering the ring or Octagon. She was the fiancée of former Polish football player Przemysław Buta. In a 2019 interview, she cited "some difficulties" in her personal life for "almost two years," confirming that she is no longer engaged to Buta.
