Joanna Jedrzejczyk faces Rose Namajunas at UFC 223 on April 7 in a rematch of their fight last year at UFC 217.

Namajunas pulled off a big upset win in their first fight and handed Jedrzejczyk the first loss of her career at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Jedrzejczyk was criticised from all angles in the MMA community following her loss, but with the rematch now booked, she says shes ready to claim back the title that she first won back in March 2015.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk, Jedrzejczyk thanked her UK fans for their support and said that she was doing everything in her power to reclaim her title.

I get so many messages of support from the UK and England, Jedrzejczyk said.

I will bring the belt home to Europe and to my homeland of Poland.

Everything is on point so please be patient.

Its been a good preparation and I had to learn to be patient, but its worth the wait what I have for you.

Jedrzejczyk later said that her plan is to reclaim her UFC title and bring it to the UFCs first-ever fight card in Liverpool on May 27.

She also added that one of her fellow American Top Team teammates Salim Touahri would be fighting on the card in a bout announced this morning by the UFC against Bradley Scott.

Thats my plan [to bring the UFC title to Liverpool], Jedrzejczyk said.

My friend Salim Touahri is fighting there and the card looks amazing so far and I will definitely come to Liverpool with the belt.

UFC Liverpool will be headlined by Darren Till who according to reports is set to fight Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson.

Jedrzejczyk, who has arguably been one of Europes premier MMA fighters for the past few years, said she recognises Tills talent and thinks the fight with Thompson should be an interesting clash.

Yes, of course, hes a big deal and hes a big talent, Jedrzejczyk said.

Lets see you know, its a good matchup.
