Joanna Champion to Jessica Penne: “You will feel the Polish power!”

Joanna Champion’s (9-0) playful trash talking yesterday seems to have needled Jessica Penne (12-2), who shot back by comparing her opponent to Gollum, the character from “Lord of the Rings.”

Joanna Jedrzejczyk, who admits to enjoying “the game before the game,” laughed off Penne’s response.

“I’m coming, Jessica. You [haven’t] had that good of opponents in the cage. You’re going to feel the Polish power. I am coming. I am the champion and I am coming. I’m coming for you, Jessica,” she said in an interview on the MMA Hour.

Jedrzejczyk is defending her Strawweight Title against Penne in the headliner at UFC Berlin this Saturday, June 20.

UFC Berlin will be shown on Fight Pass, with prelims beginning at 3 pm ET/12 pm PT.
