A stacked card just got even better with the addition of top strawweights Michelle Waterson and Cortney Casey. Scheduled for Glendale, Arizona on April 14th, UFC on FOX 29 already features Dustin Poirier vs. Justin Gaethje and Carlos Condit vs. Matt Brown. Fight of the Night is going to be hard to come by in this one.
We last saw Casey at UFC 218 in December where she lost a razor close decision to Felice Herrig. This off the back of her most notable victory yet, a dominant unanimous decision over Jessica Aguilar, her third victory in four fights. Already the winner of two Fight of the Nights, Cortney Casey is looking to take home some more bonus money on the 14th.
Equally game is her opponent, Michelle Waterson. Nicknamed The Karate Hottie, Waterson is regarded as one of the true veterans of Women’s MMA, making her pro debut over a decade ago. She has since earned a 14-6 record, the Invicta Atomweight Championship, and a Performance of the Night bonus for her first round finish of Paige VanZant.
Both of these fighters are sure to put on a show for the fans in Glendale, a crowd that will likely be very supportive of their hometown Cortney Casey. Here’s what the rest of the card looks like so far:
