In an interview with MMA Junkie, Joanna Jedrzejczyk responded to her critics who say she doesn’t respect her opponents. Here are highlights:

On life after losing her title: “My life is better than before. Some people, they can’t believe I’m smiling, I’m in good mood, and I’m looking forward. They think I should sleep and cry and do nothing. I do more. I’ve had more offers to work with big companies – the biggest companies everywhere than I had before. Because they see a human. At the end, they see a fighter. They see a professional athlete. I do my business from beginning to the end. And this is who I am. And I’m stronger.”

On if she will change her attitude: “People who are saying I was cocky or arrogant, this is why I lost. I just want to tell you that I will be more cocky. I will be more arrogant. And I will be more loud. Because I know my value. I’m bigger than that night at UFC 217. Mistakes happen to everyone. And don’t you worry. But it was not a mistake. Because I didn’t do any mistakes. It was an accident. And people don’t know, I’m not going to blame it on anyone. Because I’m a classy lady. I’m a professional athlete. And I take this.”

On those who say she disrespects her opponents: “When people say I don’t respect my opponents – I do respect them, more than 10 other fighters together. Because I show that respect in how I work my ass hard every day in the gym. And that’s the thing. I never talk about their families. I never say bad things to my opponents.”
