LISTEN: Mike Goldberg lost complete use of brain and tongue when trying to say “Joanna Jędrzejczyk”

And it was the first name that got him


Show me someone who nailed the pronunciation of Joanna Jędrzejczyk’s name at the first time of asking and I’ll show you a liar.

Typically it’s the surname of the UFC strawweight champion that trips fans up but that wasn’t the case for commentator Mike Goldberg during the broadcast of UFC 197.

Goldberg, who obviously knows how to pronounce Jędrzejczyk’s name having done so on countless occasions when calling her fights, simply had something of a brain fart when reading out a promo for The Ultimate Fighter 23 finale this summer.

Goldie absolutely nailed the “Jędrzejczyk” portion of the name but we have absolutely no clue how to even transcribe his attempt at “Joanna.”
