‘The Karate Hottie’ returns against Aisling Daly at UFC Hamburg

Michelle ‘The Karate Hottie’ Waterson is set to make her second UFC appearance when she takes on fellow strawweight Aisling Daly on Sept. 3 at UFC Fight Night in Hamburg, Germany.

The UFC confirmed the fight Tuesday morning for the event currently headlined by a heavyweight tilt between Andrei Arlovski and Josh Barnett.

Waterson, who trains out of the Jackson-Wink Academy in New Mexico, is 1-0 in the Octagon since moving over to the promotion following a stint as Invicta FC atomweight champion. In her first UFC strawweight bout, put on a clinic against Angela Magana, ranking up a 47-8 significant strikes advantage before finishing with a third-round submission.

She was slated to follow up that performance with a fight against Tecia Torres at UFC 194 but was forced to the sidelines with a knee injury.

Taking the Octagon opposite of Waterson is Daly, a competitor on the historic 20th season of The Ultimate Fighter and a member of Straight Blast Gym in Ireland, home to UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor.

Daly is 2-1 under the UFC banner and fought like a woman possessed in her unanimous decision win over Ericka Almeida in front of her hometown fans in Dublin last October. She’ll be looking to crack the division’s top 15 with a win over 11th-ranked Waterson in Hamburg.
