Joanna Jedrzejczyk made a statement Saturday night at UFC on FOX 12, defeating Juliana Lima.

She also gained one important fan in the process: UFC president Dana White.

“She’s legit, man,” White said in the locker room after the contest. “I’m a big fan.”

Jedrzejczyk (7-0) dominated the 15-minute bout that aired on UFC Fight Pass, scoring a decision victory in her Octagon debut. The win was her fourth via decision.

She out-landed Lima, 87-51, including a plus-16 advantage in significant strikes. The two had an intense weigh-in, and that carried over to the fight. Jedrzejczyk also showed her wrestling skills, avoiding 15 of the 16 takedown attempts by Lima.
