UFC Fight Night: Jędrzejczyk vs. Waterson (also known as UFC Fight Night 161 or UFC on ESPN+ 19) is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that is planned to take place on October 12, 2019 at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida, United States.[1][2][3]

Background[edit]

Whie not officially announced by the organization, the event was initially linked to the newly constructed Chase Center in San Francisco, California, which would have marked the promotion's first visit to the city. It would have also been the first trip to the Bay Area since UFC 117 in 2010.[4][5] However, the plans for a San Francisco debut fizzled and the promotion confirmed that the event would instead take place in Tampa, Florida.[6] The event will mark the promotion's third visit to Tampa and second at the Amalie Arena following UFC on Fox: Teixeira vs. Evans in April of 2016.[2]

A women's strawweight bout between former champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk and former Invicta FC Atomweight Champion Michelle Waterson is expected to serve as the event headliner.[7]
