UFC 193: What did Joanna Jedrzejczyk say to Valerie Letourneau during intense weigh-in staredown?

For those who missed the UFC 193 weigh-ins (photos here and video here), strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk was her usual feisty self, getting the face of Canadian challenger Valerie Letourneau in what could only be an attempt to steal her soul.

After the pushing and shoving, Joe Rogan asked Jedrzejczyk what she was mouthing to "Trouble" as they came nose to nose with one another from inside Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Rogan: Joanna, first of all, what did you... that was a very intense staredown. What did you say to her?
Joanna: That her lucky day was yesterday. Today and tomorrow gonna be my lucky day because I'm the best. That's all.

Frankly, I think Jedrzejczyk cleaned up the language quite a bit for her response. In an interview Ariel Helwani had with UFC president Dana White yesterday, the Polish pugilist reportedly used the B-word to describe the French Canadian in their pre-weigh in staredowns.

Helwani: You were at the staredowns just moments ago. What did Joanna say to Valerie. Could you hear?
White: She said, this is your last fight, bitch.
Helwani: (Laughs) Really? She threw in the B-word?
White: Oh yeah.
Helwani: Wow, did Valerie say something back?
White: Yeah. They were going back and forth. It was awesome. It was very intense. And then I think Valerie told her to fuck off at one point.

Man, for such a cute-as-a-button fighter, Jedrzejczyk sure can pull out the demon when she needs to.

With all the talk about Ronda Rousey vs. Holly Holm, who's more looking forward to this showdown in the co-main?
