Michelle Waterson might be the “The Karate Hottie,” but there will be two hotties headlining UFC on FOX 22. On Wednesday, it was announced UFC golden girl Paige VanZant (pictured) will tango with Waterson in the December 17 event.
UFC president Dana White announced the matchup on this week’s edition of “UFC Tonight.”
VanZant rebounded from a lopsided submission loss to Rose Namajunas by knocking out Bec Rawlings in August. “12 Gauge” is victorious in five of her past six outings.
Waterson, meanwhile, hasn’t been seen since tapping out Angela Magana in her UFC debut in July 2015. The 30-year-old has won seven of her last eight bouts.
Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California serves as host. FOX will broadcast the main card live.
Here is the card’s current lineup:
Sage Northcutt vs. Mickey Gall
Paige VanZant vs. Michelle “Karate Hottie” Waterson
