UFC Tampa Live Results
Two of the UFC’s most popular strawweight competitors will do battle in a pivotal contenders bout, as the UFC holds an event tonight at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida.
Former UFC women’s strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk (15-3) faces Michelle Waterson (17-6) in the main event of the evening.
Jedrzejczyk won the championship as an undefeated fighter at UFC 185 and held the title for over two years before losing it in major upset fashion to Rose Namajunas at UFC 217. After losing the rematch at UFC 223, Jedrzejczyk defeated Tecia Torres in July 2018 before facing Valentina Shevchenko for the women’s flyweight championship at UFC 231.
Waterson, the former Invicta atomweight champion, enters this fight on a three-fight win streak and a 5-2 Octagon record. Over the past couple of years, Waterson has scored decision wins over Cortney Casey, Felice Herrig and former strawweight title challenger Karolina Kowalkiewicz — the latest of which came in March at UFC Philadelphia.
The co-main event will feature veteran Cub Swanson facing top prospect and fourth-generation Gracie family member Kron Gracie.
