Joanna Jedrzejczyk makes a really stupid post

2개월 전

In case you were wondering, yes I did copy / paste her surname. I would be willing the bet that Joanna does the same thing.

I have liked "JJ" since her weight division became a thing and eventually became what i consider to be more exciting strawweight division. She seemed unstoppable for a long time and has fallen out of form lately losing the best and then the rematch to Rose Namajunas and later to Svechenko.

Despite this rather unimpressive past 2.5 years, she seems to be a bit of a darling of the UFC as she has a title bout coming up against Zhang Weili and this is where the controversy starts.

Although JJ is not the creator of the meme, someone superimposed a gas mask onto JJ's face as a stab against the fact that Weili is from China and as the news won't let us forget, China the origin of the Corona virus.

It is not uncommon for fighters to take shots at one another online before a fight, but it seems some of them really aught to hire a social media adviser because it really doesn't take too much intelligence to realize that there would be some backlash about this.

Zhang replied with a touch more class than JJ might have expected when she said

"To make fun of tragedy is a true sign of ones (sic) character. People are dying, someones father, someones mother, someones child. Say what you want about me if it makes you feel stronger but do not joke about what's happening here. I wish you good health until March 7th. I will see you soon"

I would be willing to bet that JJ didn't make a whole lot of friends with her really insensitive and ill-advised Instagram post, which has now been deleted. She later apologized and the fight is going to take place as scheduled.

I suppose all publicity is good publicity, because until JJ did this I wasn't even aware she had a title fight coming up.

I was really excited when they opened up the Women's league of UFC. I will be honest, I haven't been able to watch much of it though. I used to watch all of the fights pretty regularly, but I am usually too busy to catch them these days...

with a few exceptions, such as the horribly boring Holly Holm fight during the last PPV, I feel as though the women's division is actually a lot more entertaining than the men's. Perhaps that is because the division is new. It all came about with Rousey!

Lately, i have been avoiding social media the day of a fight and then downloading the file after it has aired. It doesn't take very long but that way I can just skip the boring fights because sadly the PPV's seem to be mostly boring fights and it should be the opposite.

Yeah, I hear you. Or even worse yet you pay tons of money for the PPV and then the main fight is a huge let down. There have been times I have been like I sat through all of that for this and paid how much?

I really liked Holly's fight during the last PPV. It definitely wasn't an action packed fight but was a good scoring fight which I appreciate.

I like the idea of just watching the card post air. I think that would save some serious time vs watching live even for being able to skip past Modelo commercials.

i only watched the fight after the fact this time around because of necessity, but yeah, i think i enjoyed watching it like that a lot more as well. The last fight can be a bit of a spoiler though because when you get to that point the time remaining in the broadcast is a pretty good indicator of how long the fight is gonna be :)
