Joanna Jędrzejczyk wanted to get revenge against Rose Namajunas after losing their last battle together. She’s going to have to wait even longer now, as she fell once again in the co-main event at UFC 223 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Namajunas, who was shaken up in the Conor McGregor melee on Thursday when he threw a dolly through a bus window, retained her women’s strawweight championship. She got a unanimous decision over Jędrzejczyk Saturday night.
The 30-year-old Jędrzejczyk has lost twice to Namajunas since Nov. 2017. In their first meeting at UFC 217, Namajunas defeated Jędrzejczyk by TKO (punches) in the first-round.
Right now, Namajunas is the only fighter to defeat Jędrzejczyk in her career. She stands at 14-2 in her career following the loss on Saturday.
The 25-year-old Namajunas is 8-3 in her career, including a three-fight win streak. She has not been defeated since losing to Karolina Kowalkiewicz at UFC 201 on July 13th, 2016 via a split decision.
According to FightMetric, Namajunas landed 65 head strikes, while Jędrzejczyk had only 49. Namajunas landed 80% of her shots to Jędrzejczyk’s head, with 14% to her body.
Jędrzejczyk, on the other hand, landed 44% of her shots to Namajunas’s head. She had 18% to Namajunas’s body and 37% to her legs.
