FC Fight Night 161: Jedrzejczyk vs. Waterson Betting Prediction 10/12/2019
The Amalie Arena in Tampa will host next Saturday, October 12, the UFC Fight Night 161, an event without titles in play but with fights of the highest level, such as the one that will face the former champion of the female strawweight Joanna Jędrzejczyk and number 7 in the ranking of aspirants, Michelle Waterson. Cub Swanson, who is going through the worst moment of his career, and the promising and undefeated Kron Gracie will star in the men’s main fight.
Joanna Jędrzejczyk vs. Michelle Waterson
Away is the time when Joanna Jędrzejczyk dominated her category and was the best pound-for-pound fighter in the entire UFC. The Pole has gone from being an undefeated fighter to losing 3 of her last 4 matches. In spite of this, it is undeniable that she has quality in all facets of the fight. He knows how to keep his distance and his punch combinations are explosive. We must not forget that Jędrzejczyk won the title against Carla Esparza in UFC 185 and retained it for 3 years.
Michelle Waterson is an expert in ground wrestling, dams, and key work. She’s also good at making long fights and looking for points, although she’s not a particularly forceful hitter. She is currently seventh in her category and is going through a sweet time, having won by a decision her last 3 bouts in a row, the most recent of them against Karolina Kowalkiewicz. To find their last defeat you have to go back to 2017 when the legendary Tecia Torres beat them to the points.
Joanna Jędrzejczyk is a spectacular fighter and, despite having lost 3 of her last 4 fights, she is a clear favorite to win this fight. She needs to recover from the moral blow of her last defeat and has the technique and the punch on her side. Waterson’s only chance to win could be to bring the fight to the ground. In any case, our experts think that Jędrzejczyk will be imposed by unanimous decision.
Cub Swanson vs. Kron Gracie
It’s hard to find a Mixed Martial Arts fan who doesn’t know Cub Swanson. Nicknamed Killer, he has fought in different companies and has been in the UFC for 8 years now. With 36 fights behind him, he has 25 victories and 11 defeats. Of his 25 victories, 11 have been by knockout, 10 by decision and 4 by submission. Swanson’s great defect is wrestling, a method by which he has lost in 7 of his 11 defeats. He is going through a bad time with 4 consecutive defeats.
Kron Gracie is practically a novice in the world of mixed martial arts. He has only fought 5 times in his career and only 1 of those fights has been a UFC fighter. But there’s a compelling reason Gracie is fighting in this Fight Night, and that’s because he’s the pupil of the mythical Nate Diaz. Kron Gracie is undefeated for the moment having won his 5 fights by submission, 4 of them in the first round.
Cub Swanson is a fairly complete and more experienced fighter, but curiously he is not a favorite in this fight. After 4 consecutive defeats, some predict that we are at the end of his career. On the contrary, Kron Gracie means some fresh air in the category, but it remains to be seen whether or not he will be able to adapt to the UFC. With all this in mind, our experts hope that victory will fall on Kron Gracie’s side, surely by submission.
