Joanna Jedrzejczyk is a striker with surgical precision, a deadly mindset, and might as well have razorblades sticking out of all eight points of contact she can hit you with. That being said, it's hard to wrap your head around the dichotomy of her existence. One minute she can be frightening, the next she's doing sock puppet shows on Instagram. It may surprise you, that the beloved killer wears her heart on her sleeve.

Unfortunately, after a completely fair game question by Ariel Helwani, Joanna broke down into tears. She would appear on The MMA Hour in order to explain what happened, while also getting the people marching against Helwani to put out their torches. It turns out, Joanna developed a special bond with her American Top Team coach, Kami Barzini.

While it sucks that Joanna's coach that she's grown very close to is leaving, one silver lining should be highlighted. is such a high caliber champion, that after winning a title she still decided to change camps. It's incredible to note how much she improved in her fight with Jessica Andrade since she moved to ATT, when Joanna was already near perfect. As she approaches Ronda Rousey's record, it's going to awesome watching Joanna continue to grow.
