UFC Tampa results – Jedrzejczyk vs. Waterson

The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to Tampa, Florida this weekend, headlined by a contest between two of the promotion’s top strawweight competitors.

Earlier in the week it was reported that former 115-pound champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk might be having issues cutting down to the strawweight limit. Jedrzejczyk quickly thwarted those accusations and stated that she still had time. Yesterday the former champion was able to prove her doubters wrong when she stepped on the scale and made weight with ease.

Jedrzejczyk’s opponent, Michelle “The Karate Hottie” Waterson enters the contest with a three-fight streak. The winner of this bout could soon be in line for a title shot.

In the night’s co-main event, hard hitting veteran of the game, Cub Swanson, will take on jiu-jitsu ace Kron Gracie.

Also, Niko Price battles Texas native James Vick, while Mackenzie Dern returns to competition for the first time since giving birth to her daughter earlier this year.

Eryk Anders and Gerald Meerschaert open up the main card in a middleweight contest, followed by Matt Frevola and Luis Pena.

UFC Tampa takes place on Saturday, October 12, with the main card beginning a 8pm EST on ESPN+. The card will be held at the Amalie Arena.  Get a FREE 7-day trial of ESPN+ by clicking here.
