[Joanna Jedrzejczyk is washed up and does NOT deserve a shot at her belt] I don’t think shes the fighter that she used to be. She’s not in the condition she used to be. I’m not very interested. I want to fight the best. Right now I think Valentina Shevchenko is one of the best

For Joanna Jedrzejczyk, I don’t think she’s the fighter she used to be, I’m not very interested. She needs me more than I need her and she is struggling in the division to fight me, but I don’t know if I will give her the chance. I want to fight the best, I think maybe Rose Namajunas is a good [choice]

If I had the chance I’d like to go up a weight class and fight the best and right now I think Valentina Shevchenko is one of the best female fighters
