All three judges gave Jędrzejczyk 50-45 wins. The fight went to the judges following the fifth round.

Jędrzejczyk — who was born in Olsztyn, Poland, who now resides in Florida — improved to 16-3 in her MMA career. This win snapped her one-fight losing streak following a loss to Valentina Shevchenko in December 2018 at UFC 231.

The 33-year-old Strawweight fell to 17-7 in her career. This is her third loss by decision.

The Albuquerque, New Mexico native had her three fight win streak snapped with this loss. Before this loss, her last loss was to Tecia Torres on December 2nd, 2017, also by a unanimous decision.

During the three fight win streak, she defeated Karolina Kowalkiewicz, Felice Herrig, and Cortney Casey.
