I am aware of the rankings, which I pay very little attention to. We've seen low rank fighters beating higher rank fighters before. Its not unheard of. I know Michelle well, her career I have followed from her Invicta debut to her loss of the atom weight title. My thoughts: This is a special situation since Waterson now rank #7 just began her SW career and had to start somewhere before destroying both SW's she fought so far. Angela Magana and Paige who she did outclass everywhere. I know its tough to decide Waterson's full potential right now based on defeating Paige VanZant and another fighter thats not even ranked in the top 10 anymore... but she just beat the best focused Paige VanZant quickly at Paige's own game because she chose to. If you notice Michelle comes prepared for the ground as well. She is the only one who comes to the octagon and fights with the tight Reebok tee shirt, not your traditional tank UFC top. That top helps add to her game. Karolina Kowalkiewicz....is a warrior with lots of heart, I cant take away from her accomplishments. She had NOTHING for JJ... on the ground she has nothing for Waterson. I think Michelle Waterson could/would submit Karolina quickly in the first or second round. Discuss if you wish, Agree or Disagree?
