UFC Fight Night 217 – Joanna Jedrzejczyk Vs. Rose Namajunas

Jedrzejczyk is the UFC woman in the limelight right now, she is soaring at the moment and looks close to unstoppable. She can find her way out of any take down and her striking has improved several folds. It is extremely difficult to handle her from near or afar. Not only has she been able to successfully fend off challengers and defend her title five times, but has done so with considerable ease.

This one at UFC Fight Night 217 is an easy prediction. It is highly unlikely that Rose Namajunas can defeat Joanna Jedrzejczyk. It is not about whether Jedrzejczyk will be able to defend her titile, we are pretty sure she can! The question really is how much trouble can Namajunas cause while she is still standing on two feet.

So how good is Namajunas? Well, she is capable of causing some trouble. However, it is only a limited amount of trouble that she can cause. Against, someone like Jedrzejczyk, she might not be able to cause any trouble whatsoever.

Don’t get us wrong, Namajunas is a very talented fighter. She has defeated women such as Paige VanZant and Michelle Waterson.

But, Jedrzejczyk is just too much of an ask right now. Unless Jedrzejczyk for some reasons makes a huge mistake or only relies on grappling (which is Namajunas’ forte) or if Namajunas is able to land a heavy and unexpected blow to cut the fight short, it is highly unlikely that she will be able to come out on top here.

Furthermore, Jedrzejczyk is going to be up to the brim with confidence going into this fight. She has looked invincible recently and she knows how good her form is. Our prediction for this one is going to be Jedrzejczyk to win by unanimous decision.
