UFC: Jedrzejczyk vs Waterson

| |


After a numberless event with so many bids for the average crowd, the world's largest MMA organization has bet on more explosive fighting for its return to the Florida coast at UFC Tampa.  The Amalie Arena, home of Tampa Bay Lightning (NHL), will host a handful of prospects wanting to take the lead in veterans.

In the main fight, former strawweight champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk returns to the category trying to improve on her recent record against Michelle Waterson, who is trying for a fourth straight win to win the title.

Previously, Kron Gracie, the first member of the royal jiu-jitsu family to win at the UFC since Uncle Royce in 1994, is aiming for the biggest victory of his career against former top 5 featherweight Cub Swanson.  They will succeed James Vick's debut as a midfielder in combat with Niko Price.

The jiu-jitsu elite will also be represented among women.  A few months after giving birth to daughter Moa, Mackenzie Dern returns against Brazilian Amanda Ribas.  Opening the main card, Eryk Anders faces Gerald Meerschaert for the lightweight while Luis Peña bumps Matt Frevola for the lightweight.
