Joanna Jedrzejczyk takes on Michelle “The Karate Hottie” Waterson in the main event at UFC Fight Night 161.
This exciting women’s strawweight bout takes place at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida this coming Saturday night (October 12th) with all the live coverage starting from 1am Sunday on BT Sport here in the UK.
From: Olsztyn, Poland
Fight History: Record (15-3-0) – Joanna is returning to the 115 pound division after her Unanimous Decision loss to the reigning flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko in December 2018. That was her third loss in her last four fights, the other two defeats coming against Rose Namajunas.
From: Aurora, Colorado, United States
Fight History: Record (17-6-0) – This former professional model is also a former Invicta FC Atomweight Champion. Her last bout was against another Polish fighter Karolina Kowalkiewicz back in March which ended in a Unanimous Decision win to take her current winning run to three fights following her wins over Courtney Casey and Felice Herrig.
Joanna Jedrzejczyk’s previous form, excellent footwork and strike rate means she comes into this fight as a hot favourite with the UFC bookmakers at a best price of just 3/10 (1.30) with Betway Sports.
Michelle Waterson is the 2/1 (3.00) underdog with Coral and her best chance of winning this fight probably lies with her groundwork on the floor. However, Joanna Jedrzejczyk has never lost to a submission in her 18-fight career.
We fancy Joanna to win this one but for better odds we will look to the ‘Method Of Victory’ market where she can be backed at 8/11 (1.73) at Betway to win by Decision / Technical Decision.
