    I think hill has a significant power advantage. The problem with Waterson is her kicks do hurt, but it’s not enough to slow down, or dissuade some of the bigger girls who can muscle their way in and do real significant damage. Those long range kicks kind of lose their usefulness if your opponent can eat one and keep moving. Joanna showed what it looks like when your tough enough to get inside and take advantage of Waterson on the inside. This is going to be an IQ test for hill, because her opponent has some pretty glaring weaknesses, and she has the tools to capitalize. She just has to execute.

    Waterson would be wise to go for a significant leg kick that really impedes hill early. She needs to slow down on those head kicks because she’s not koing anyone clean with them, and focus her attention on slowing down Angela so she can maintain the distance.

    Fairly even on the feet with the power advantage definitely going to Hill. If Waterson is smart she'll go for a grappling UD or possibly get a submission.

    Compelling fight. Hill is a legit top 10 fighter right now IMO.

    This is probably her best chance to make any kind of run in this division.

    Why is Angela Hill ranked so low? They should take into account that she was robbed against Gadelha.

    Angela Hill IMHO is waaaay better on the feet. If she keeps it standing easy win

    I like this fight...

    Should be a fun fight for as long as it stays standing, but I give a slight edge to Waterson for having the better ground game and having the ability to take it there if she needs to.

    5 fights within 11 months.

    3 Ws & 2 TKO's so far... If all women start to go this route WMMA has a bright future

    while I like Michelle, people need to see the reality, she is headed for retirement

    it could come in this fight if Angie gets a devastating KO

    Saw Angela Hill last year at the New York hotel in Vegas as I was checking in. I pointed at her and she pointed back at me and smiled. Been a fan ever since

    Hard to root against Michelle Waterson and her thiccness though

    She did get a shitty outcome versus Claudia for sure. And only Aldo can lose a fight and move up lol

    Easy win for Hill, betting a million on her. Karate not so hottie hasn't evolved her game at all.

    I bet Michelle tries to take it to the ground. I expect a boring fight
