Jonna was the UFC strawweight champion for quite a while. She suffered her first defeat in November 2017. Since then, she has struggled to find her footing in the division. Joanna also tried her luck in the flyweight division but failed to capture the flyweight title. She then returned to strawweight.

After a victory over Michelle Waterson,  Joanna earned herself a second title shot against Weili Zhang. The bout between Weili and Joanna was a brutal war. Many consider it as a hall of fame worthy fight. It could have gone either way, but the champion retained her title.

The real highlight of the match happened midway through the fight when Joanna developed a massive hematoma on her forehead. It swelled up to an extent where she was almost unrecognisable.

While the world celebrated the fight, Joanna’s American Top Team teammate, Colby Covington had some harsh words for her. Covington and Joanna have quite the history. In the past, Joanna expressed her displeasure with Covington’s antics and even demanded an apology.

Speaking on theScore MMA podcast, Covington revealed that he only watched the fight because he betted a lot of money on it.

Trash talking is a key aspect of Joanna’s game. It allows her to have a psychological edge over her opponent. However, Covington who himself talks trash to get under his opponents’ skin, was having none of it.
