There is no love lost between Claudia Gadelha and Joanna Jedrzejczyk, as the bad blood continues to run strong.
Jedrzejczyk grabbed a split decision victory over Gadelha back in December 2014, and Jedrzejczyk went on to defeat Carla Esparza to capture the Ultimate Fighting Championship strawweight title.
Both fighters’ animosity towards one another was evident on the 23rd season of ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ as they traded verbal jags in heated moments throughout the show.
Jedrzejczyk once again defeated Gadelha in their rematch, but did so the 2nd time around via unanimous decision.
Still, Gadelha holds ill-will for her rival.
“My thing with Joanna is personal” Gadelha said while speaking to the media in Las Vegas (via MMAJunkie.com). “We hate each other. Even now, she’s not the champion, but I still want to fight her again. I want to punch her. I want to beat her ass. I just want it, because I don’t like her.”
