The UFC is coming off the helms of UFC 230 where the world was talking about Daniel Cormier holding on to the Heavyweight Championship by submitting Derrick Lewis in the second round. The next event for the company is UFC Fight Night 139 on November 10th and the card is locked and loaded. A fighter who is looking to find her way onto a card after stringing together two consecutive victories is the 16-6-0 Michelle Waterson. Waterson last fought at UFC 229 in October where she defeated Felice Herrig.
If Michelle had to choose her next fight, she would choose to face the 13-4-0 Karolina Kowalkiewicz and spoke more on that while talking to TMZ Sports in New York.
“I’d like to fight Karolina. I think that’s a great matchup. Another matchup to propel me even closer to the belt, so hopefully we get her and if not her, somebody in the top five so I can get closer to fighting for the belt." Waterson explained.
The conversation then turned over to WWE having their first-ever all-women's pay-per-view recently and the reporter asked Michelle if she thinks that would be a good idea to do for the women of UFC and here's how she responded:
“You know… the girls could definitely hold it down. If they did an all-female card, that would be amazing and we could definitely hold it down - something definitely to think of for the future." She continued, "Hopefully I’ll be headlining that show."
As mentioned, UFC Fight Night Denver is set to commence this weekend and to view the updated lineup for the show, click here.
