This is what Joanna Jedrzejczyk said during HEATED staredown with Zhang Weili
“The Boogeywoman” certainly seems to be back. On Saturday, in the co-main event for UFC 248, former strawweight champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk will return to challenge Zhang Weili for the title. Heading into the bout there have been doubters, questioning if Poland’s Jedrzejczyk will be able to return to the championship form and mentality that made her so dominant. One thing is certain: Jedrzejczyk is back to her old, intense self.

At the pre-fight media day leading up to UFC 248, staredowns took place ass usual. However the most intense was undoubtedly between Jedrzejczyk and Zhang. While the newly crowned, Chinese champion speaks little English, Jedrzejczyk wasted no time getting in her opponents face. The Pole would often intimidate her opponents in earlier fights, and this instance was no different.
“What you have done yesterday to my fans, you never do that.” Jedrzejczyk said during the staredown. “You don’t fuck with Polish Nation. But you never knew that. And, I will outclass you on Saturday, I promise you. You’ve never faced someone like me!”
With her limited English, Zhang simply responded with “shut up”.
“This is all that you know? I will shut your mouth with my fists,” Jedrzejczyk continued. “You’re like a little girl inside… I will show you.”
As of now it’s not completely apparent what Jedrzejczyk is referring to in regards to Zhang disrespecting the formers fans. Zhang is hardly the confrontational type, but there is certainly bad blood between these two women. Jedrzejczyk made an open apology following a joke she reposted on social media, which used the Corona virus outbreak as the butt of the joke. Zhang did not take kindly to this, and there has been tension between the two.
