Unlike, say, the men’s flyweight division, the women’s strawweight class is chock full of talented fighters who are compelling to watch. Champ Joanna Jędrzejczyk is an absolute killer, Karolina Kowalkiewicz is made of iron, Paige VanZant and Angela Hill are fun as hell – really, there isn’t a fight to be made among the 115-pounders that doesn’t feature at least one competitor who’s cute as a button and capable of tearing someone’s head off.
Which brings us to UFC on FOX 24’s co-main event – a pairing between Rose Namajunas and Michelle Waterson. Namajunas is a submission machine, Waterson is a beast, and both are trying to secure that elusive title shot. Will these fight be awesome in every way possible? It will. These ladies couldn’t have a boring fight if they tried. Should you tune in? You should.
