Women’s MMA bout between Michelle Waterson and Angela Hill is a new main event for UFC Vegas 10. The strawweight contest has been promoted to headline the fight card on September 12 after the initial top of the bill – Thiago Santos vs Glover Teixeira – fell off due to a positive COVID-19 test earlier this week.
The promotion made the announcement today via social media.
Michelle Waterson (17-8) lost of her previous bouts. She was last in action this past May, when she suffered the defeat by split decision against Carla Esparza. In October last year she dropped a unanimous decision against former strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Prior to that she won three bouts in a row.
Angela Hill (12-8) is also coming off the defeat by split decision. She last fought also in May, suffering the defeat against Claudia Gadelha. Before that she recorded three straight victories.
