The UFC is fast (if it hasn’t already) getting the reputation for collecting the most attractive and dangerous women in the world.

But don’t doubt for a second – these women are legit’.

Anyone who watched the Paige VanZant versus Felice Herrig fight was left in no doubt that. As attractive as these women are, they are every bit as well trained, conditioned, and ferocious as their male counterparts.

Enter Michelle ‘The Karate Hottie’ Waterson – the newest UFC signing.

Waterson, a 29 year-old from Colorado, has been a model, appeared in film, and had her image lapped up by sports fans around the globe.

But don’t let her svelte Thai beauty deceive you. Try something on with her in a bar and you’ll be carrying your arm home in a sling.

Waterson is a former Invicta Fighting Championship atomweight champion. She has an impressive 12-4 record and has fought a who’s-who of women’s MMA; including a 2013 submission victory over UFC #3 ranked strawweight and TUF winner Jessica Pena.

The Karate Hottie enters the UFC with momentum, having won six of her last seven fights. She’s looking to shake up the strawweight (115 pounds/ 52 kg) division and certainly has the pedigree to do so.

One of the keys to her success in combat sports is her almost unique skill-set. Waterson has been training in karate for 19 years! She holds a black belt in American freestyle karate and has a substantial background in WuShu, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, boxing and wrestling.

UFC fans are thrilled.

Waterson poses a real threat to any woman in the strawweight division. She has the experience, ring-craft, training and toughness required to make real inroads into what is becoming a blue-ribbon division.
