Michelle Waterson and Tecia Torres are to fight at UFC 194 in December in Las Vegas. It is an important fight for the women's straw division.
Former Invicta champ, Michelle Waterson, made an impressive UFC debut when she defeated Angela Magana which also launched her to the No 11 position on the official rankings and, according to Dana White, among top fighters in her division. In this upcoming match she also got an opponent who is probably only one match away from the title shot.
Tecia Torres came to the UFC as a very successful fighter and one of the main Ultimate Fighter contenders. However, she was defeated twice in the TUF (she was re-introduced to the show after Just Kish sustained an injury) but her professional score is till impeccable (6-0). Torres scored two wins in the UFC and is currently positioned as No 5 below Penne, Namajunes, Esparza, Gadelha and current champ Jedrzejczyk.
It will indeed be an interesting match between Michelle Waterson who has a very attractive style, and Tecia Torres who is basically a wrestler. However, Karate Hottie in her match with Magana proved that she lately improved her ground game which is surely the result of her cooperation with Greg Jackson team.
UFC 194 is to take place December 19 in Las Vegas and is to be headlined by Conor McGregor and Jose Aldo, while Chris Weidman and Luke Rockhold fight in the co-main event.
