While MMA fans are buzzing about Joanna Jedrzejczyk’s successful UFC debut, another Polish fighter, Paulina Bonkowska, will be making her return to mixed martial arts.
Cage Warriors Fighting Championship announced that Bonkowska would make her Cage Warriors debut against British competitor Kate Jackson at their Cage Warriors 72 card, Sept. 13. In addition to Bonkowska vs. Jackson, the event will feature two championship bouts.
Bonkowska comes in with a 3-2 record. She dropped a decision to Karolina Kowalkiewicz back in 2012. Before that match, she had three consecutive first-round finishes.
Meanwhile Jackson comes in at 4-2-1. Back in May, she went the distance with Finnish fighter Vuokko Katainen. One year earlier she lost to Jedrzejczyk via second-round TKO.
