“Karate Hottie” Sidelined Until At Least This Summer


Michelle Waterson’s quest to become UFC champion will remain sidelined for the extended future.

Waterson, known as the “Karate Hottie” suffered a broken hand in training, according to a report by MMAjunkie.com. The information was obtained by her manager, Joshua Gomez.

Waterson (13-4) scored a victory in her Octagon debut over Angela Magana. She is a former Invicta FC champion.

Gomez said the injury is healing “great” and that Waterson will be re-examined soon. He said the strawweight should be cleared to compete again in July.

Waterson was forced out of a December bout with Tecia Torres due to a knee injury.
