Michelle Waterson vs. Marina Rodriguez ready for UFC Vegas 26 main event – fr


UFC Vegas 26 is headlining.

On Tuesday, officials announced that strawweights Michelle Waterson (18-8) and Marina Rodriguez (13-1-2) will climb one division for Saturday’s 125-pound main event at UFC APEX in Las Vegas. The fight was initially reported as being in the works after the postponement of the originally planned headliner between TJ Dillashaw and Cory Sandhagen and first reported as official by Yahoo Sports.

Waterson comes off a split decision victory over Angela Hill in September, while Rodriguez fought more recently in January, taking a second round TKO victory over Amanda Ribas.

A welterweight bout between Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and Alex Morono is expected to serve as Saturday’s main co-event. Morono steps in at short notice as Sanchez’s replacement following Sanchez’s release from the UFC.
