The strawweight championship showdown at UFC 205 looks like won’t be needing any judges, according to Joanna Jedrzejczyk’s coach Mike Brown.
Brown, who coaches at American Top Team in Coconut Creek, Fla., has been getting the 115-pound champion ready for her fourth UFC title defense against Karolina Kowalkiewicz at Saturday’s historic UFC 205. Brown, who’s been training Jedrzejczyk for almost 10 weeks, is confident that Jedrzejczyk’s talent and domination will translate into a stoppage Saturday night.
“I’m confident that she’ll win,” Brown told Ariel Helwani on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour. “I’m not sure how or when, but if she lands her shots and puts the pressure and really brings the heat like she can, I don’t think it’ll go to distance. Maybe second or third she’ll wear her down and break her with volume.”
Brown’s confidence roots from his strong belief that Jedrzejczyk is technically superior than Kowalkiewicz. And although Kowalkiewicz is a solid challenge, Brown doesn’t think Kowalkiewicz is Jedrzejczyk’s toughest test in the strawweight division.
“I think she [Kowalkiewicz] squeaked by in a couple of those fights where she had three split-decision wins,” Brown said. “Those fights were basically close, and I think Rose [Namajunas] was truly the better fighter in that fight, but Rose seemed to fatigue and gas in that fight. I think Karolina has very good conditioning, she’s very tough, but I think Joanna is technically the superior fighter. So I think that’s going to be the big difference, and I think Joanna should be the favorite and for good reason.”
But Jedrzejczyk’s opponent is not the only question looming over her title fight, as this fight marks Jedrzejczyk’s first fight camp at ATT, and many are wondering how the champ will look Saturday night. Brown says that there won’t be any big ….View full article
