Latest UFC Fight Night 161 fight card, rumors, updates for ‘Joanna vs Waterson’ on ESPN+ on Oct. 12 in Tampa

New, comments

Top-ranked strawweight contender, Michelle Waterson, didn’t get the title shot she was hoping for, but no question a win over ex-champion, Joanna Jedrzejczyk, would put her in line for a crack at reigning division titleholder, Weili Zhang. Also getting their hands dirty in “The Sunshine State” are Cub Swanson and Kron Gracie, as the longtime veteran aims to show the jiu-jitsu wunderkind that MMA is more than just slick submissions.
