On Thursday, it was announced former Invica FC strawweight champion Michelle Waterson (pictured) will make her UFC debut against Angela Magana at The Ultimate Fighter 21 Finale.

The event takes place July 21 at a yet-to-be determined venue in Florida.

Waterson is looking to bounce back from December’s upset loss to Herica Tiburcio which cost her the Invicta crown. “The Karate Hottie” had rattled off six straight wins prior to the submission defeat.

Speaking of trying to right the ship, Magana will be trying to snap a three-fight losing streak. She most recently dropped a unanimous decision to Tecia Torres in her UFC debut in December.

A lightweight scrap between former champ Benson Henderson and Michael Johnson is expected to headline the event.

Fox Sports 1 is expected to broadcast the main card live.
