This Saturday’s UFC on ESPN+ 19 main event featuring a strawweight contest between Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Michelle Waterson is in major jeopardy and likely to be called off.
UFC reporter, Aaron Bronsteter, detailed the situation earlier today.
“Some breaking news from Raphael Marinho of Combate this morning, who reports that Joanna Jędrzejczyk has informed the UFC that she will be unable to make 115 for this weekend’s main event Waterson is refusing a catchweight and has also refused facing Dern or Ribas per Marinho” he wrote.
“Angela Hill may replace Waterson in the main and face Joanna at a catchweight and Waterson may move to the UFC 244 card.” he continued.
The story is continuing to develop and an update has since been provided.
“Combate have updated the story and report that the UFC have given Michelle Waterson two choices: Face Joanna this weekend at a catchweight or face Jessica Andrade at UFC 244.” he concluded.
