Jedrzejczyk Is Ready to Make Magnum ‘Bow Down’ and ‘Quit’ at UFC 248

During the square off, Jedrzejczyk said to Magnum, “What you have done yesterday to my fans, you never do that. You don’t f**k with Polish nation. But you never knew that. And I will outclass you on Saturday; I promise you haven’t faced someone like me.”

Zhang interrupts the former strawweight champ when she said, “Shut up.”

Jedrzejczyk then proceeed to tell Zhang that she will shut her mouth with her fists. She also said to Magnum that she will make her bow down and quit at UFC 248.

This will be Magnum’s first strawweight title defense since winning the belt at UFC Fight Night 157 when she finished the champ Jessica Andrade by first-round TKO. It is a belt Jedrzejczyk knows well as she was the queen of the division for over two years.

During her UFC 248 open workout, Magnum flipped off a couple Polish fans.

The Two Women Will Compete on March 7 at UFC 248

The strawweight championship match will take place during the co-main event of UFC 248 on March 7. Magnum, who is the first and only Chinese UFC champion ever, will hope to close the distance on the rangy Jedrzejczyk.

Jedrzejczyk has dreams of reclaming the strawweight title. She initially won the title in March of 2015 at UFC 185 when she dominated then-champ Carla Esparza. She won the title via second-round TKO, and went on to defend the belt five times.

Her reign came to and end at the hands of Rose “Thug” Namajunas who starched Jedrzejczyk in the first round of their UFC 217 match. Jedrzejczyk was granted an immediate rematch, but she lost a unanimous decision to Thug Rose at UFC 223.

Since Jedrzejczyk’s second loss to Namajunas, she has gone 2-1. The single loss came from a failed attempt to capture flyweight gold, losing to the current champ, Valentina Shevchenko.

Magnum, on the other hand, is on a 20-fight win streak. She has gone 4-0 in the UFC, and her most recent victory was her championship winning performance against Jessica Andrade at UFC Fight Night 157.
