Looks like ex-UFC champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk is staying at flyweight

Former UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk recently moved up to the flyweight division to challenge for the title, only to lose a unanimous decision to Valentina Shevchenko at UFC 231.
Jedrzejczyk is a legend in women’s mixed martial arts, producing a 15-3 career record and a 9-3 mark inside the Octagon. She won the 115-pound strap by beating Carla Esparza by second-round knockout at UFC 185 on March 14 of 2015.
The 31-year-old Polish fighter would successfully defend her title five times before being knocked out by Rose Namajunas in the opening round of their UFC 217 showdown. Then in the rematch at UFC 223 in April of last year, ‘Thug’ beat Jedrzejczyk by UD (49-46 across).
Jedrzejczyk bounced back to win a UD over Tecia Torres last July before moving up to face Shevchenko.
By the looks of her Instagram page in recent weeks, it appears that Jedrzejczyk is planning on staying in the 125-pound loop. In other words, she clearly got a boob job recently, joining other female UFC fighters like Paige VanZant and Miesha Tate in doing so during their fighting career.
Speaking of VanZant, she makes her Octagon return Saturday to face Rachael Ostovich as a -160 favorite. Ostovich is a +130 underdog. Tate, the former bantamweight queenpin, is enjoying retirement and recently gave birth to her first child.
