A women’s straw-weight bout between Michelle “The Karate Hottie” Waterson and Tecia “The Tiny Tornado” Torres has been added to the UFC 194 line up. The bout was officially announced on Monday.
Waterson (13-4) recently made her UFC debut this past July is a former Invicta FC champion. She won her debut against Angela Magana via a third round rear naked choke. She has gone 4-1 in her last five bouts and a win over Torres may bump her to the top of the contender’s list in the straw-weight division.
Torres (6-0) is a former TUF contestant and though she did not fair very well on the show she has gone on to both of her UFC bouts keeping her professional record perfect. A win over Waterson will also likely propel her to the front of the line for a shot at champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
UFC 194 will take place on December 12 live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and will be headlined by a featherweight championship bout between Jose Aldo and Connor McGregor. Also on the card is a middleweight championship fight as Chris Weidman will look to defend his title against challenger Luke Rockhold. The card will air live on pay-per-view.
