Here’s video of Joanna Jedrzejczyk carrying the Olympic torch — and yapping the entire time

I thought this was something she reserved for mixed martial arts (MMA), but it appears former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk likes to promote herself outside of the cage, as well.

To be fair, if I was given the honor of carrying my country’s torch (lolz), I probably wouldn't shut up either, though I’m not sure if the committee has ruled on my request to make click bait an Olympic sport.

Until then, I’ll keep myself atop the leaderboard with crap like this.

Jedrzejczyk (14-1) is representing her native Poland (details), but she’ll do it without the 115-pound title. That’s because Rose Namajunas stripped it from her battered fingers at the UFC 217 pay-per-view (PPV) event last November in New York City.

Not that it did anything to change this.

No word yet on who Namajunas will face next, but the once-beaten Jedrzejczyk is expected to remain out of action until the “strawweight queen” can secure a championship rematch.
