The UFC on ESPN+ 19 main event, as well as the rest of the fight card, was made official on Friday at the official weigh-in.
Michelle Waterson made her way to the scale, hitting the 115-pound mark on the nose. And while there had been speculation all week that former strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk was having trouble shedding weight, she quickly quelled the doubters by stepping on the scale at 115.5 pounds.
After making weight, Jedrzejczyk and Waterson went head-to-head for their final staredown before Saturday’s fight in Tampa, Fla. The winner of the fight is likely to get the first shot at UFC strawweight champion Weili Zhang.
The UFC on ESPN+ 19 co-main event features Octagon mainstay Cub Swanson and newcomer Kron Gracie. Both men made weight and then faced off for the cameras.
