Joanna Jedrzejczyk: Ronda Rousey still the No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter

Joanna Jedrzejczyk isn't ready to declare herself the top pound-for-pound women's fighter in the world as long as Ronda Rousey is around.

Jedrzejczyk pulled off another incredible victory on Friday night as she dispatched longtime rival Claudia Gadelha in a five-round war to cap "The Ultimate Fighter" Finale in Las Vegas.

The victory moved Jedrzejczyk to 12-0 in her career, 6-0 in the UFC and 4-0 in title fights, but she still believes Rousey is the best of the best when it comes to women's MMA.

I don't know. I'm waiting for Ronda Rousey. For me, she's still No. 1 and she deserves to be the No. 1. She was the first one and believe me guys, she will be back -- soon. -- Joanna Jedrzejczyk

Jedrzejczyk has made no secret that she's a huge fan of Rousey and became friends with the former bantamweight queen while they both were reigning champions in the UFC.

It appears Jedrzejczyk is still getting Rousey's back even after she lost to Holly Holm at UFC 193 last November.

Rousey hasn't competed since falling to Holm and there's been no clear indication that she will return in 2016.

Either way, Jedrzejczyk is willing to concede the top spot to Rousey and she clearly believes that the "Rowdy" one will reclaim her throne when she returns to the Octagon.
