Joanna Jedrzejczyk :’It’s time to fully enjoy my life’


“I’m retired,” Jedrzejczyk said “Thank you so much for the support. … It’s been 20 years. I’m turning 35 this year. I want to be a mom. I want to be a business woman. I’ve been training two decades, more than half of my life. I appreciate you all. I love you guys.”

Jedrzejczyk (16-5 MMA, 10-5 UFC) said she didn’t enter UFC 275 knowing that it would be her last fight. Retirement was something she had thought of, but it wasn’t firm in the lead up to the fight.

“No, it was just in the moment, but I’ve had it in the back of my head,” Jedrzejczyk told reporters at the UFC 275 post-event news conference. “Maybe there was one day, maybe like a year ago, if something happened I might retire because I’ve been in this business for the last 19 years. Lots of investments from myself. It’s time to fully enjoy my life. I approach so much and honestly I haven’t had the time to think about how big my legacy is. I’m a hard worker, and I always dedicated myself. I give as much as I can, and I get as much as I can in the same way, but now it’s time to fully enjoy it.”
