UFC Tampa Fight Night

Intrigue and drama swept over the main event when Joanna Jedrzejczyk notified the UFC that she might not be able to make 115 lbs by today. Michelle Waterson declined a catch weight fight along with a short notice replacement fight against Mackenzie Dern. Waterson looked amazing at open workouts and was absolutely shredded at the weigh in tipping the scale at a perfect 115 lbs. Joanna went through a brutal crash cut that through video released was extremely difficult and painful. Somehow Joanna fought and clawed her way to scale today and weighed in at 115.5 ponds making weight and securing the main event for Saturday night in Tampa.
