Waterson (14-6-0) enters the fight riding a two fight losing streak, dropping fights to the duo of Rose Namajunas and Tecia Torres. Waterson hasn’t earned a victory in well over a year and that last win came over Paige VanZant at UFC On Fox 22. Waterson is also a former Invicta Fighting Championships Atomweight Champion, defeating Jessica Penne at Invicta FC 5 to win the gold.

Casey has seen her last three bouts go to a decision and it has almost been two years since the competitor earned a finish in a fight. Casey won a total of six fights as an amateur MMA competitor, with one of those wins coming over fellow UFC fighter Ashley Yoder.
