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.
