MOSCOW – Joanna Jedrzejczyk sides with the UFC when it comes to the decision to strip Nicco Montano of the women’s flyweight title. Montano (4-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC), who was the promotion’s inaugural 125-pound champion, had her belt taken away last week when she was forced to withdraw from her scheduled UFC 228 co-main event against Valentina Shevchenko (15-3 MMA, 4-2 UFC) on weigh-in day. Only a handful of fighters in UFC history have been stripped of their belts. It’s often a last resort for the organization, but with the scenario involving Montano, Jedrzejczyk (15-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC) said it was justified.
