UFC 193: Hector Lombard says Joanna Jedrzejczyk wants to become a 'big mouth' like Conor McGregor

Though she isn't as brash or as loud as Conor McGregor, Joanna Jedrzejczyk is just like the fiery Irishman when it comes to the trash talking department.

That's according to UFC welterweight contender Hector Lombard, teammate and "partner" of Valerie Letourneau, who told Submission Radio that the Polish-born fighter is trying to take the road "Notorious" took on his way to super stardom.

His words:

"Obviously she wants to be loud. She kind of like wants to change her personality because she wants to become a big mouth, because unfortunately when you talk more, you get more views. She wants to become like Conor McGregor or something like that, know what I mean? So good for her. We're gonna take the belt. That's what matters."

Not a bad path to take, I suppose.

Of course, the champion's trash talk isn't as explicit as Conor's, but she does do a good job at trying to play mind games with her opponents.

Though Hector is in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia for this weekend's UFC 193 pay-per-view (PPV) event, he won't be able to corner Valerie for her co-headlining title fight against Joanna.

And you can thank USADA for that.
