MICHELLE WATERSON VS ANGELA HILL LOWDOWN

Michelle Waterson and Angela Hill jump up to the main event spot after Glover Teixeira pulled out of his fight with Thiago Santos due to a positive COVID-19 test.

Waterson is coming off two losses for the second time in her career. In October last year she was outclassed by Joanna Jedrzejczyk in a number one contender fight and then she came up against the decision queen Carla Esparza who squeaked out another split decision.

Hill is also coming off a split decision, but few would have raised an eyebrow if she got the nod over Claudia Gadelha. This snapped a three-fight win streak which is long in the strawweight division and she looked phenomenal. She finished Ariane Carnelossi and Hannah Cifers and then earned a unanimous decision over Loma Lookboonmee displaying all her class on the feet.

MICHELLE WATERSON VS ANGELA HILL PREDICTION

We have seen Hill’s whole MMA career mature in the UFC and we are now seeing the best version of her but a win over Waterson will be the trophy of how far she has come. Hill has always been a beast in Muay Thai and she will hope this fight stays on the feet.

Waterson is also a beast on the feet and although she does not have the pop in shots like Hill does, technically she is sound and has the movement to frustrate Hill. However, the difference could come in her grappling.

A stand-up battle would be thrilling to watch but if the fight goes to the ground, Waterson will have a significant edge and will try and exploit the only hole in Hill’s game. If Hill’s takedown defence is on point, she can bag the points in a striking battle but Waterson has a two pronged attack and the experience to utilize it.

Winner: Waterson via Decision

Value Bet: Waterson via Submission
