Earlier tonight (Sat. October 12, 2019) top-ranked UFC strawweights Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Michelle Waterson met inside the Octagon for the UFC Tampa main event. Both women were looking to secure a victory and punch their ticket to a 115-pound title opportunity against Weili Zhang.
It was a tremendous fight by both women, but Jedrzejczyk clearly had the advantage on the feet, with Waterson threatening a couple of times with some back takes throughout the fight. However, when it was all said and done, Jedrzejczyk was awarded the unanimous decision victory in lopsided fashion. After the fight, Jedrzejczyk declared her intention to challenge Weili Zhang for the strawweight title next.
