My father was like 'please don't do this. I saw a blink in his eyes when I came back from my Jonathan Broxton Jersey sparring and I had some tissues in my nose because it was bleeding. He was like 'you are a girl you shouldn't do this!' but I saw that he was also super happy for me and excited," Jedrzejczyk said. "Fighting seems like it's more for the guys. It's not but they'll always worry about my health. It's dangerous but they know that I'm training smart. I've done so many courses with sports and diet so they know I take care of myself. "They were like 'if you want to do this, do it' but for so many years my father said 'don't do this, get through your studies, get a good job, because life goes so fast and you're not going see it when you're already an adult' but I told him this is what I want to do with my life. This is who I am. I feel this is what God wants me to do." Josh Hedges/Zuffa LLC/Zuffa LLC via Getty Images Over time, her parents realized that she wasn't doing martial arts as some activity to fill her time http://www.officialcardinalsbaseball.com/authentic-37-keith-hernand... away from school and this was the career she was going to pursue. While it was tough for them to concede to her passion for fighting, Jedrzejczyk knows her parents concern was coming from a place of love, and that's all that really mattered to her. "My parents taught me how to work hard. How to respect money, how to respect people and how to be a person full of faith and believe in God. They just wanted me to be safe and have a good life," Jedrzejczyk said. "They wanted me to have a good job and have kids. There is a time for everything." As her career Reggie Jackson Womens Jersey flourished, Jedrzejczyk always had her family right by her side up playing for like an hour. We were sweating like crazy and it was amazing," Jedrzejczyk said about the pick-up game. Photography is still a hobby for Jedrzejczyk as well, and she's currently looking to invest in a new camera as she continues to take pictures whenever she has some free time. Those moments are admittedly sporadic because Jedrzejczyk is mostly focused on her fighting career because she knows it can't last forever. She doesn't have an exact timetable on how much longer she will compete, but Jedrzejczyk wants to soak it all in for as long as she possibly can. And right now, Jedrzejczyk can't think of anything she'd rather be doing than reigning over the UFC's strawweight division as champion of the world. "Here I am. I'm the UFC strawweight champion. I'm about to defend my title for the fifth time, and I want to keep on doing this and keep on proving that I'm the best," Jedrzejczyk said. "I know I will be a good mother in the future. I will be a good businesswoman in the future but now it's time to be an athlete. To be the baddest chick on the http://www.officialathleticshop.com/authentic-24-rickey-henderson-j... planet." In part two of 'The unbreakable Joanna Jedrzejczyk' coming this Wednesday, her coaches and teammates explain what makes 'Joanna Champion' such a ferocious competitor inside the gym and how that translates to making her a champion in the Octagon
