When Poland’s Joanna Jedrzejczyk dethroned Carla Esparza as the women’s strawweight champion of UFC 185’s co-main event in March, she became the continent’s third titleholder. It had been just shy of a decade since Andrei Arlovski had beaten Paul Buentello to unify the promotion’s heavyweight title all the way back at UFC 55...
