UFC on ESPN+ 19 Results: Jędrzejczyk Too Much for Waterson, Swanson Batters Gracie
On Saturday, Oct. 12, the UFC hosted its 19th event on ESPN+, touching down at the Amalie Arena in Tampa.
In the night’s main event, former strawweight champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk clashed with former Invicta FC atomweight queen Michelle Waterson. Poland’s Jędrzejczyk had fallen on hard times, dropping three of her last four. She was most recently in action at UFC 231, challenging Valentina Shevchenko for flyweight gold, but fell short on the scorecards. The New Mexico-based Waterson entered the headlining affair having won three straight inside the Octagon. She topped former title challenger Karolina Kowalkiewicz in March.
The action kicked off at 5 p.m. ET with the preliminary card streaming live on ESPN+. The night’s main card followed at 8 p.m. ET, also on ESPN+.
