We have all been there. We think we are alone and start singing, air drumming, acting, etc. when someone walks into the room to bust us. And instant embarrassment sets in. Elite fighters are not immune.
UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk is one of us.
Jedrzejczyk has been on the shelf since defeating Valerie Letourneau at UFC 193 with a broken hand. The champion underwent surgery to repair the appendage, and she has yet to resume full-time training. It is beginning to make the champion a bit stir crazy.
She was busted shadowboxing in the morning. She can be seen sliding around the room in her socks while throwing hands, and takes a seat on the couch to bury her embarrassment when she gets caught. Something the vast majority of us can relate to doing at least at one point in our lives.
It is just another endearing social media post from the champion. It showcases her personality and connects with her fans.
Jedrzejczyk has no fight date set in stone, but the champion has been linked to being the next coach for the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter. No. 1-ranked contender Claudia Gadelha is rumored to be the opposing coach.
As Jedrzejczyk recovers from the injury, the television program would play well in adding a bit of intrigue to the impending title tilt. Gadelha and Jedrzejczyk fought at UFC on Fox 13 in December of 2014. The bout was razor-thin, with Jedrzejczyk getting the nod to propel her to her 2015 title shot.
The upcoming season had a casting call for three divisions: strawweight, women’s bantamweight and light heavyweight. The results of the casting have not yet been released.
Perhaps we will see Jedrzejczyk’s charismatic personality on the show, but if not, you can always follow her antics on Instagram. She is a must-follow and is quickly becoming one of the most likable champions on the UFC’s roster.
