If you thought the UFC were done announcing fights, think again. And if you think MTV is going to stop Michelle Waterson from fighting, you’re wrong. It was just revealed that Waterson would be competing on The Challenge raising money for charity. Naturally we thought this meant she’d be taking a break from fighting, but that isn’t the case. The UFC just announced that Karate Hottie will be fighting Tecia Torres at a ridiculously stacked UFC 218 card in Detriot.

Tecia Torries is riding a two-fight win streak right now, with her last loss being to current title challenger Rose Namajunas. Michelle Waterson on the other hand, had her two-fight win streak stopped from becoming three by Namajunas as well. Torres is ranked five, Waterson is ranked six, all this to say that you couldn’t pick a better match-up. You can check out Karate Hottie November 21st on MTV while you wait for her fight with Torres coming up on December 2nd.
