Fantasy MMA contests are now available for #UFCTampa, and as always BSMMA is offering both paid entry contests with guaranteed prize pools as well as free entry contests where you can compete for points & prizes!
The UFC heads down to Florida for a jammed packed 14-fight card headlined by the former champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk (15-3) and the streaking Michelle Waterson (17-6). If that’s not enough action for you, the UFC is also bringing the heat with power puncher, Cub Swanson (25-11), taking on the grappling ace Kron Gracie (5-0).
Title Shots On the Line
This will be just the second non-title fight Joanna Jedrzejczyk has fought since 2014. With a win over top contender and former champion, Jessica Andrade, another key victory could make her the next challenger for Weili Zhang.
Waterson won’t go easy though as she looks to make it four straight victories and place herself firmly in the picture for a shot at the strap. Dana White has already mentioned her as a potential challenger, and a win over the longest reigning strawweight champion of all-time certainly wouldn’t hurt.
The main event isn’t the only bout on the card with title implications. Earlier on in the night a flyweight bout between Deiveson Figueiredo (16-1) and Tim Elliott (15-8-1) could cause some major movement at the top of the flyweight division. Elliott has already had a shot at the strap, but after nearly two years off, he’s looking for another signature win to get back on the mind of fans. To do so, he’ll have to be just the second person to beat Figueiredo, who has unprecedented finishing power for a 125er.
Jiu Jitsu Lineage
In the co-main event, the first family of jiu jitsu returns to the octagon. Son of the great Rickson Gracie, Kron, looks to keep his record undefeated inside of the cage. After a debut win over Alex Caceres, Kron takes takes a quick run up the featherweight ladder against a perennial top 20 fighter in Cub Swanson.
That’s not the only legendary jiu jitsu blood stepping up this weekend. Makenzie Dern (7-0), an ADCC world champion in her own right, is the daughter of world champion Megaton Dias. Over half of her fights have ended with her locking in the submission, so break out the submission button and “Slater” bonuses for each of these two.
