Its been a month since Jessica Andrade viciously slammed then strawweight champion Rose Namajunas at UFC 237 in Rio De Janeiro to become the new UFC strawweight champion. Ever since then fans are wondering who should Andrade defend her title against next.
Now it looks like even UFC president Dana White is undecided on who should Andrade fight next. Even though many fans believed that the winner of Tatiana Suarez vs. Nina Ansaroff should fight for the title, it was widely expected that Tatiana would get another dominant win, but the fight didn’t go as most fans believed and Ansaroff charged late and gave Suarez a run for her money
So anyone can get a title shot next, even though Michelle Waterson seems to be in the good position to fight for the title, she is not Dana White’s first choice.
“Michelle Waterson? Definitely not Michelle Waterson,” White said at the UFC 238 post-event news conference. “Michelle Waterson doesn’t even want to fight until like September or October or something, and she’s ranked too low.”
Waterson heard about White’s comment and took to social media and stated that she wants to fight Andrade next.

Come on @danawhite @jessicammapro @ufc let’s make it happen!
Do you guys think Michelle Waterson deserves a shot at Jessica Andrade?
