Rumors surfaced earlier this week that former strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk was struggling to make weight for her UFC on ESPN+ 19 main event with Michelle Waterson. 

Jedrzejczyk has worked hard to quell the rumors, but grew frustrated at the UFC Tampa open workouts when the first few minutes of her scrum was a grilling about her weight cut.

“Give me space guys,” Jedrzejczyk said.

She was then asked if she was confident she would make weight, to which she responded, “Are you confident that you’re going to wake up tomorrow? Thank you so much. That’s the point.”
