Michelle Waterson’s UFC Win Angela Magana

UntitledWhat a fun fight this was (finally available on UFC Fightpass). And not just because Waterson won.

The fight started off generally even-footed, but there was a hint of what was to come as Magana tried to take down Waterson and Waterson was the one to throw her down on the octagon floor.

There was a really tense minute where Waterson got her arm really caught by Magana in an armbar, and it really looked like it was caught bad, but Waterson was able to shift and pull out. It’s not the first time we’ve seen Waterson’s flexibility and technique help her out of armbar danger.

After that exciting moment, the rest of the fight was just a showcase of Waterson’s abilities, including her newly upgraded wrestling strength and skills. After throwing Magana down a few times, a few armbar submission attempts, and basically very dominantly kicking, punching, and kneeing her opponent around the cage, Waterson finished the fight by choking Magana, causing the latter to tap out about midway through the third round.
