What came out as a developing story from Aaron Bronsteter has now turned into breaking news, as there is belief that Michelle Waterson will not be fighting Joanna Jedrzejczyk this weekend in the main event of UFC Fight Night 161.
Jedrzejczyk informed the UFC that she wasn’t able to make weight, so the UFC offered Mackenzie Dern or Amanda Ribas to Waterson at catchweight. After Waterson refused, Jedrzejczyk may have a new opponent before Saturday night.
It is believed that Angela Hill could fight Jedrzejczyk, and that Waterson will be moved to the UFC 244 card.
