Fresh off her UFC debut win over Angela Magana in June, “The Karate Hottie,” Michelle Waterson, will end 2015 in Las Vegas as she takes on number five-ranked strawweight Tecia “The Tiny Tornado” Torres at UFC 194.
UFC 194 is headlined by the long-awaited featherweight title bout between Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor and the middleweight championship fight between Chris Weidman and Luke Rockhold. UFC 194 will be held on December 12, 2015 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Ranked eleventh at 115 pounds, Waterson is a former Invicta FC atomweight champion whose move to strawweight against Magana was a successful one, as she submitted her opponent in the third round. A TUF 20 alum, the unbeaten Torres – who owns wins over Paige VanZant and Rose Namajunas – has won two UFC bouts thus far over Magana and Angela Hill.
