Joanna Jedrzejczyk records fifth UFC title defense against Jessica Andrade

Joanna Jedrzejczyk won her fifth UFC title defense on Saturday via unanimous decision over Jessica Andrade.

The fight was held at American Airlines Center in Dallas—the same building in which Jedrzejczyk first won the belt two years ago.

“There is only one strawweight champion of the world: Joanna Jedrzejczyk of Poland. Remember that,” Jedrzejczyk said. “No one is taking this belt from me. Nobody.”

Andrade entered Saturday’s fight on a three-fight winning streak. But she wasn’t able to compete against Jedrzejczyk, who set the tone with her leg kicks and her jabs. According to Fightmetric, Jedrzejczyk landed 215 total strikes compared with 74 for Andrade.
