It’s a big fight weekend — the last of 2015.
Our friends at the Ultimate Fighting Championship have a rare two title bouts in one show on Saturday at UFC 181 in Las Vegas, and both look like great fights. ONE FC offers of their biggest events of the year on Saturday in the Philippines, with the promotion’s bantamweight title on the line — plus Brandon Vera, Roger Gracie, and others.
But it’s Invicta FC which will take center stage tomorrow, as the promotion’s “poster girl” Michelle Waterson defends her Invicta FC atomweight (105 lb) title against Herica Tiburico. Weigh-ins are today, and we’ll have results later.
Waterson has shown tremendous growth as a fighter since debuting with North American audiences with the short-lived Muay Thai reality series Fight Girls back in 2007. Among newly-sharpened skills in her arsenal, Waterson has acquired a potent ground game, which, in fact, won her the Invicta FC belt with an armbar victory over Jessica Penne last year.
One thing hasn’t changed in all these years, though — she’s a charmer.
In this video, Waterson smiles her way through “10 Things You Didn’t Know About Michelle Waterson.” Ever want to know what she would be doing if she wasn’t a fighter? What animal sounds she can make? Her favorite quote?
