Breaking: Michelle Waterson vs Karolina Kowalkiewicz added to UFC Philadelphia

Per Brett Okamoto for ESPN, an exciting strawweight showdown has been added to an upcoming UFC Fight Night card in Philadelphia on March 30.

“The Karate Hottie” is riding a two-fight win streak with victories over Cortney Casey and Felice Herrig. Waterson (16-6) aims to become UFC’s first champion that is a mother.

Poland’s Kowalkiewicz (12-3) will look to bounce back from a KO loss to Jessica Andrade at UFC 228. She is a former title challenger and is also the last woman to defeat current champ Rose Namajunas.

Who will you be rooting for?

  1. great fight, i’ll watch it with two big eyes. both these girls come forward. There are a lot of stinker WMMA fights with both girls just being pattycake half-ass striking (jodie esquibel is guilty of this) but this will be an exception

    1. in fairness to Jodie, she’s usually fighting women with reaches 5 inches longer than hers. She has trouble getting inside now that she’s a full time strawweight.
