UFC Women’s Strawweight Candidate Marina Rodriguez has said former champion Joanajedjezik needs to be removed from the UFC rankings.
Rodriguez defeats Mackenzie Dern through a unanimous decision at the main event of the UFC Vegas 39 event on Saturday.. It was a great performance by Rodriguez, who defeated Darn in most of the rounds and defended Darn’s attempt to submit when the fight began. This victory promoted Rodriguez to the top five in the women’s straw weight category, at which point she is probably one win from the title shot.
The UFC Women’s Straw Weight title is currently held by Rose Namajunas. Rose Namajunas will face Wei Lee Chan in a rematch at UFC268 next month. Carla Esparza is expected to be the winner of the battle on the next title shot. This means that Rodriguez is looking for another opponent in the top five to get one step closer to the belt, and that enemy could be Jedjezik. Former UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion hasn’t fought since losing the split decision to Weili Zhang in the war last March. Fans have suggested that Rodriguez can fight Jedjezik, but Paul doesn’t seem to want it.
Talk to Reporter Following UFC Vegas 39, Rodriguez said he didn’t think Yedjezik would fight her, and she was also worried about her inactivity. She hasn’t been fighting for over a year, so Rodriguez actually thinks Jedrzejczyk should be removed from the rankings. The former champion is currently ranked as the second-largest candidate in the category.
“Joanna has already said she doesn’t want to fight me. To be honest, she hasn’t taken action for a long time and shouldn’t be ranked anymore at this point. She doesn’t want to fight me. If so, I don’t want to fight her either. The problem is that she occupies a very important position in the rankings and many girls try to fight a couple of times a year to get there. That place is locked, so if it weren’t for her, Yan Xiaonan would be a good fight, “Rodriguez said.
