Joanna Jedrzejczyk Says The UFC Keep An Eye On KSW For Talent Like Mateusz Gamrot
It was announced last evening that Joanna Jedrzejczyk will take on Tecia Torres at UFC on Fox 30 on July 28, but earlier in the week the Pole was been talking about the MMA scene closer to home.
Speaking to ZapinamyPasy.pl, Jedrzejczyk was asked what she thinks about KSW. The strawweight never fought in the organization herself, but she said that she has a lot of respect for the promotion and that she thinks the UFC are keeping a watchful eye on some of their fighters.
“Respects to KSW,” Jedrzejczyk said. “To be honest, they taught a Polish fan to watch MMA, so they have a great respect and gratitude from me.”
“UFC matchmakers and Dana White track these events, because they want to catch some talents and bring them to UFC.
“There are plenty of great fighters in KSW. In example, Mateusz Gamrot, great polish talent, who is currently training with me in American Top Team.”
KSW 39: Colosseum last year was the second highest attended event in MMA history with 58,500 packing out the National Stadium in Warsaw.
Having fought at a stadium show event herself back at the infamous UFC 193, Jedrzejczyk appreciates the ambition of the Polish based promotion.
“KSW events resonate all over the world. Their production is great and it’s a really good organisation. They have good fight cards even one at the national stadium.
“I know what that’s like, because in 2015 I fought in Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia with and attendance of 50 000 people.”
“Really, huge respect for organising such an event.”
