Michelle Waterson is hoping to return to the UFC Octagon in September or October and already has two opponents in mind for her comeback.
Waterson (15-6) spoke of her plans during a recent chat with MMAJunkie.
“We are wanting to get a fight maybe September, October time frame,” Waterson said. “We don’t have anything scheduled yet. I would love to fight Karolina or Carla Esparza. Those two are the ones I have my eyes on the at the moment.”
When informed that Kowalkiewicz is currently booked to fight Andrade, Waterson said she’ll settle for Carla Esparza.
“I guess (Kowalkiewicz) is out of the question,” Waterson said. “(Esparza) is (a good fight).”
‘The Karate Hottie’ rebounded from a pair of losses to Rose Namajunas and Tecia Torres this past April by winning a decision over Cortney Casey. She now looks to build on that momentum upon her return in September/October. The 32-year-old owns victories over many notable names including Paige VanZant, Jessica Penne and Angela Magana.
