Joanna Jedrzejczyk gets feisty with Valerie Letourneau on UFC 193 media call

Before the two strawweight competitors step into the Octagon to face each other for the UFC strap, UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Quebec’s Valerie Letourneau exchanged some words via a media conference call ahead of UFC 193.

Joanna spoke freely about Letourneau’s last bout against Maryna Moroz:

“You know, I honestly watched her last fight against Maryna Moroz and she did very well,” Jedrzejczyk said. “She almost knocked her out in the first round. I’m supposed to beat Valarie for what she did in Krakow. She just had a big mouth, but she wasn’t ready for a fight with me.

“I’m happy that I’m going to face Valarie. She’s the right person.”

The Quebec fighter had this to say about her last performance:

“Maybe she’s going to have a bad surprise on Nov. 14,” Letourneau said. “I feel like I improved from my fight with Jessica Rakoczy to Moroz, but I feel like I’ve improved 10 times more already from my fight with Moroz to now. I just can’t wait to put it all there and show what I’m capable of. I hope I’m able to put everything into action.”

The Polish born fighter, who is known to be energetic and confrontational, had this to say during the media call, which totally changed the mood:

“Can I say something?” Jedrzejczyk interjected. “I’m not not Maryna Moroz and I’m not Racozy. I’m Joanna Champion.”

“I know you’re a great fighter, Joanna,” Letourneau said. “There’s no doubt about it.”

Jedrzejczyk got in the final word before UFC Vice President of Public Relations Dave Sholler redirected the call.

“That’s good,” Jedrzejczyk said. “Keep it in your mind.”
