There's nothing small about the resolve of UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk

Los Angeles Times

As the UFC debuts in Madison Square Garden, the event likely will draw first-time fans who've never seen anyone like women's strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk. A dynamo of energy and punching power packed inside a 115-pound frame, Jedrzejczyk (12-0) will seek to successfully defend her belt for the fourth time Saturday at UFC 205 when she meets her Polish countrywoman Karolina Kowalkiewicz (10-0). "I want to show people there are no limits in life," Jedrzejczyk told The Times this week. "If you dream big, if you work hard, you can become whoever you want to be. No matter what you want to be, make it happen."

Nico Rosberg has stunned Formula One with the announcement that he is retiring, only days after winning his first world championship with Mercedes. "From the moment when the destiny of the title was in my own hands, the big pressure started and I began to think about ending my racing career if I became world champion," Rosberg, a German, said in a statement on Facebook on Friday. "On Sunday morning in Abu Dhabi, I knew that it could be my last race and that feeling cleared my head before the start. I wanted to enjoy every part of the experience, knowing it might be the last time. Rosberg, son of 1982 title winner Keke Rosberg, is only the second son of a world champion, after Britain's Damon Hill, to take the crown.
