The changes keep coming for Joanna Jedrzejczyk and her pro career.

Having recently parted ways with her former gym back home, the UFC strawweight champion is now training alongside some of the best fighters on the planet at American Top Team in Florida. She’s also looking for new management.

“I am waiting for a good offer,” Jedrzejczyk told MMA Fighting. “Bring me some money, and that’s all what I want from my manager. I’m here. I’m in the U.S.”

Jedrzejczyk, who defends her UFC crown against Karolina Kowalkiewicz at UFC 205 Nov. 12 in New York City, says she still has a good relationship with her former manager, but admits that it was a necessary change to reach what heights she believes she’s destined for.

“We’re still friends, I like Tiago Okamura so much,” she said. “But I decided to change something in my life and…you know, sometimes you need to change something in your life to go higher. I want to work with the best people in the world because I’m the best in the world. I want to retire as a champion, and this is my goal. This is my dream. And mark my word, because I’m going to do this.

“People are afraid of changes, and afraid to change in their life. But they like to complain. I don’t like to complain, I like to work. So it wasn’t easy for me to leave my gym or my coaches or my manager, but I want to keep on growing.”
