This past Friday night, Michelle Waterson and Cortney Casey successfully made weight and took part in a staredown at the UFC on FOX 29 ceremonial weigh-ins.
Waterson and Casey both weighed in at 115lbs, making Saturday’s strawweight fight official. Take a look at the ceremonial weigh-in faceoff below, courtesy of ReactQ:
Waterson (14-6) looks to rebound from a two-fight losing skid after dropping bouts to Tecia Torres and Rose Namajunas. The 32-year-old owns notable UFC submission victories over Paige VanZant and Angela Magana. Prior to joining the organization, the former Invicta FC atomweight champion was considered one of the best 105-pound fighters on the planet.
Casey (7-5) will be looking to rebound from a very close split decision loss to Felice Herrig at the UFC 218 event last December. Prior to the loss, the 30-year-old had won three of her last four after dominating the likes of Jessica Aguilar, Randa Markos and Christina Stanciu.
UFC on Fox 29 takes place this Saturday April 14 from the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona, United States. The main card featuring Waterson vs. Casey will be aired live on FOX from 8pm ET.
