If the UFC introduces a women's BMF (Baddest Motherf**ker) title, Joanna Jedrzejczyk is eager to be the first contender. Jedrzejczyk, a former UFC strawweight champion with five successful title defenses, was recently inducted into the modern era wing of the UFC Hall of Fame, joining Ronda Rousey as the only women in this prestigious group.

Jedrzejczyk retired after a knockout loss to Zhang Weili in June 2022, but she has expressed a longing to compete again. She admits that a BMF title fight would be the perfect incentive to bring her out of retirement.

“I would love to fight, but I don’t have a name in my head,” Jedrzejczyk told Cageside Press. “I don’t know – whoever. I’m not afraid to fight anybody, that’s the thing. Of course, when they brought my name (as a BMF), I texted Hunter (Campbell) right away. I was like, ‘So, Hunter what do you think about me fighting for the female BMF belt,’ and he was like, ‘No, you don’t need more titles.’ … If they create the BMF for women, I want to be the first. I would come out of my retirement to fight for the BMF belt. Let’s go.”

Attending the UFC 303 event at T-Mobile Arena has only intensified Jedrzejczyk's desire to return to the octagon.

“When I’m at events like this UFC X, when I hang out with my friends or when I’m at UFC events, I feel the itch,” Jedrzejczyk said. “I always tell my manager, maybe I should fight, maybe I should come back out of retirement. I have the itch.”
