Michelle Waterson vs. Angela Hill took place in a women’s strawweight bout at the UFC On ESPN+ 35 event on Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nevada at the UFC APEX.
So here’s how it went down. Hill easily took the first two rounds. It was Waterson who won the third and fourth with a takedown and strikes.
Hill had a strong clinch game and was out striking her early in the fight, but slowed down as the fight went past 15 minutes. The judges gave the win to Waterson by split decision.
Waterson had gone 2-3 in her last five fights while being on a two-fight losing streak thanks to back-to-back decision losses to Joanna Jędrzejczyk and Carla Esparza.
Hill had gone 3-1 in her last four, but was fresh off a decision loss to Claudia Gadelha in the co-main event of the UFC on ESPN 8 event in her previous fight.
