Michelle Waterson WINS

Fans were treated to a whole weekend of UFC action, with UFC 189 going down on Saturday and the ‘TUF 21 Finale’ taking place on Sunday. The finale had some really exciting fights and finishes, including Stephen Thompson’s highlight reel spinning heel kick that put Jake Ellenberger down.

We also saw the successful debut of ‘The Karate Hottie’ Michelle Waterson, as she submitted Angela Magana in the third round of their scrap. Unfortunately, both fighters could be on the sidelines for 6 months.
