Saturday's UFC Fight Night main event will see a pair of strawweight contenders compete at flyweight in a five-round bout that came together on short notice.
As announced Tuesday, Marina Rodriguez (13-1-2) and Michelle Waterson (18-8) will take center stage at the Apex facility in Las Vegas. Former bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw was originally supposed to headline the card, but he was forced out of a scheduled fight against Cory Sandhagen due to injury.
Obviously, the circumstances around the new main event aren't ideal, but it's a meaningful matchup nevertheless. Even though it will be fought at 125 pounds, the result will have a big impact on the UFC's 115-pound rankings, where Rodriguez and Waterson are sixth and ninth, respectively.
Who has the edge? ESPN asked several experts for their breakdowns and predictions.
