Michelle Waterson vs Angela Hill Promoted To UFC Las Vegas 10 Main Event

Michelle Waterson vs Angela Hill will now headline UFC Las Vegas 10 on September 12th, 2020. According to a report from MMA Fighting, Hill vs Waterson will now be a 5-round main event fight.

The original main event for the card was Glover Teixeira vs Thiago Santos. That fight was postponed, however, after Teixeira tested positive for COVID-19. Santos vs Teixeira will now take place on October 3rd on the undercard for Holly Holm vs Irene Aldana.
