Jedrzejczyk is looking to fight Zhang again after becoming unrecognizable after losing in ‘the best UFC female fight ever’.

JOANNA JEDRZEJCZYK and Weili Zhang are set for a rematch this weekend after a brutal clash that left them both unrecognizable.

Zhang retained the strawweight title at UFC 248 two years ago by defeating Jedrzejczyk by split decision in an intense encounter that practically disfigured him.

But the Polish fighter is back after signing a new six-fight deal with the UFC and set to face her Chinese rival at UFC 275 in Singapore on Sunday.

Her historic fight is considered by many to be the “best UFC female fight ever” as it also left some serious scars on Zhang.

But it will be hard to replicate at the Singapore Indoor Stadium as this time they face off in a three-round match.

Jedrzejczyk warned that this will be a “different” fight and is confident she will perform even better.

The 34-year-old told MMA Fighting: “I’m a real warrior when I step into the Octagon.

“I’m accepting this fight, but I know I have more tools and can be a better and smarter fighter in the octagon during the fight, so I don’t have to just trade and get that damage.

“I just need to be smarter with my tools, and I’ll do that this time.

“This fight I feel will be different. Sometimes I just struggled and I should be smarter and I’ve learned a great lesson and I’m going to change that.

“Weili Zhang scored most of her shots when she countered with her cross with her right hand. We need to make some adjustments and we’ll be fine.

“I stood in front of her too much. I was working on moving more before this fight, but like I said, I’m a warrior.

“I accepted the fight [to her]I went to battle, to war, and we go back and forth.”
