Rose Namajunas To Joanna Jedrzejczyk: ‘She Makes Herself Sound Stupid’
Rose Namajunas Says Jedrzejczyk Just Sounds Stupid
Strawweight champion Rose Namajunas already proved her haters wrong after dethroning Joanna Jedrzejczyk in a rematch at UFC 223 via decision.
A defeat Joanna vehemently protests in the media as ‘JJ’ believes that she got an easy win in the second fight. Joanna still talking and acting like that she’s the best, despite being coming off consecutive losses to Namajunas.
Rose feels all that starting to sounds so stupid and ridiculous that Joanna needs to learn to accept the reality and move on.
“It don’t really bother me,” Namajunas told MMA Fighting. “I know at this point it just kind of sounds silly. The more she talks, the more she just makes herself sound stupid.”
”For me, I like to just try and be positive about everything as much as possible. Of course, you can get dragged into silly shit. I just remind myself that she was a great champion. I looked up to her at one point in my life for a reason and I just try and remember what she did for the sport and just kind of leave it at that. She was a great champion, but now it’s my time. And eventually she’s gotta come to terms with that and be OK with it.”
“I don’t know what she’s thinking, really,” Namajunas continued later. “But I know what she’s saying and she’s saying I’m scared of this or that. I think all that’s really showing is she don’t want to fight the best. She don’t want to fight me, when she knows I’m the best. She wants me to try and lose to somebody else or something, so she can challenge them or something. But she don’t really want to beat the best — and that’s me.”
“Regardless of whatever she wants, whatever is gonna happen is gonna happen and I’m gonna still keep living my life and just remember that she was a great champion. She was a great champion.”
Namajunas said she isn’t interested in a trilogy with Jedrzejczyk at the moment until she gets a few more wins under her belt, or if Jedrzejczyk publicly admitted who the real champion is, ‘Thug Rose’ said then she would agree to a third bout with her. Since that’s unlikely as Joanna hesitant to accept Rose the best, instead of labeling herself the best.
Joanna got back onto the winning column by defeating Tecia Torres at UFC on FOX 30 on (July 28, 2018), her request for the third bout seems hard, as Namajunas eyes the winner of Jessica Andrade vs. Karolina Kowalkiewicz at UFC 228.
Who do you think is the best Strawweight champion, Namajunas or Jedrzejczyk?
