Subsequent the defeat, Kowalkiewicz admitted “for the first time in my life I cannot say I’m okay”, just after it emerged she suffered a damaged bone less than her ideal eye. The decline set the 35-yr-aged on a four-struggle getting rid of streak just after earlier dropping bouts to Alexa Grasso, Michelle Waterson and Jessica Andrade.
In the course of a the latest chat with Polish publication, MMA Rocks, Kowalkiewicz declared that she is ready to comeback and is looking at a March or April 2021 return.
“March or April. Nothing is signed yet, but I’m receiving all set for that date.” Kowalkiewicz mentioned in a statement.
Kowalkiewicz owns noteworthy UFC wins above Rose Namajunas, Felice Herrig and Randa Markos. She challenged fellow Polish-fighter Joanna Jedrzejczyk for the UFC strawweight championship in 2016, shedding by way of a unanimous selection in a difficult-fought five-round fight.
